A warm, funny and emotional story of 18-year-old Simon (Bill Skarsgård), who has Asperger's Syndrome and want life to be punctuated exactly the same day after day, week after week. It includes everything from meals to activities. He shares the apartment with the more boisterous brother Sam (Martin Wallström), but when his girlfriend (Sophie Hamilton) breaks up, Simons life crashes together. His habitual security is gone. He needs to find a new girlfriend for his brother. How do you do? Can you have a girlfriend audition for his brother? May sound a little weird, but ... the filmmakers stitch together all the different elements to a mixture of romantic comedy drama about two brothers, friendship and warm description of an outsider. With Cecilia Forss in a colorful supporting role. The film was Sweden's Oscar nomination and was almost nominated. It was eliminated at the finish line. Director Andreas Öhman's other film "Bitch Hug" was on the cinema this fall.
