Friends Forever ★★★ 1986

Conformity, sexuality, and friendship are explored in this coming-of-age drama. Kristian is a shy, conformist 16-year-old, starting off at a new school. He finds himself drawn to two different young men who equally dominate his class. Henrik's androgynous sexual charm is equaled by his independence while the moody Patrick is the leader of a band of troublemakers. Kristian gains in self-confidence by their friendship but is tested when he learns Patrick is gay. 95m/C VHS . DK Stefan Christian Henszelman, Claus Bender Mortensen, Thomas Elholm, Christine Skou; D: Stefan Christian Henszelman; C: Marcel Berga; M: Kim Sagild.
