Reasons to Buy
- "Absolutely gorgeous, this film takes us to the Finnish countryside for an unforgettably romantic summer.
- Screwed won the Children's and Youth Film Prize at the Nordick Film Days Lubeck festival and the Best Domestic Film Award at the Scandinavian International Film Festival.
- " Director Nils-Erik Ekblom has said "I wanted to make a movie where a character being gay is unremarkable. I think we're heading towards a Finnish society where, between consenting adults, it won't matter who you love or who you with. I wanted to marry that thought with a traditional coming of age narrative. That's where this project got started, but there's more to this movie."
