The intelligent Annabelle starts in an elite Catholic girls' boarding high school after being expelled from the previous 2 schools. She's open about being lesbian. She's attracted to her teacher, Simone.
An uptight and conservative woman, working on tenure as a literacy professor at a large urban university, finds herself strangely attracted to a free-spirited, liberal woman who works at a local carnival that comes to town.
MIA (Ruth Vega Fernandez) and FRIDA (Liv Mjönes), both in their thirties, meet each other for the first time at their parents' engagement party. Mia's father, Lasse (Krister Henriksson), is about to get married to Frida's mother, Elizabeth (Lena Endre), which will make Mia and Frida stepsisters. Lasse's daughter, Mia, has not visited her father in years and arrives with her boyfriend, Tim (Joakim Nätterqvist), with whom she is about to get married. As Mia and Frida get to know one another, strong emotions begin to stir between them. Their relationship will turn everything upside down for everyone close to them with dramatic consequences.Written by

[Mia and Frida had just had sex again]
Mia... I think you lied to me.
I can't be the first girl you've been with.
No. Is it that obvious?
It is. I thought about it when we were on Fyn, too. Why didn't you tell me? Are you ashamed?
No. I just never thought I'd feel this way again.
Did you love her?
Would you be jealous if I said yes?
Yes, absolutely. Does Tim know?

Excellent; Ruth Vega Fernandez was amazing
I don't see how anyone could rate this movie poorly. It had a great plot and great actors. Too many times have I seen movies like this and they always turn out bad so it was great to see one that didn't follow the majority. Personally I found the actress that played Mia amazingly talented. She is able to show every emotion just through her big beautiful eyes. Throughout the movie her face would be devoid of any expression but her eyes showed everything. It was great. The only reason I gave a 9 out of 10 is because I speak English so I had to read subtitles and that takes away a bit from the greatness of the movie. I recommend it highly and you won't be disappointed.
Cons: English subtitles
Pros: Ruth Vega Fernandez (Mia) was exceptional. The playfulness between Mia and Frida. Basically everything was great about the movie. Even the cute kid brother Oskar and the fiancé.
