Teenagers John-John (Mustapha Aarab) and Elisabeth (Elsa Öhrn) come from different worlds; while Elisabeth goes for midnight swims and enjoys days dining by the bay, John-John and his group of friends burglarize stores and homes, and take other people’s boats for joyrides. One fateful day, John-John happens to be in the right place at the right time and saves Elisabeth’s little sister Patricia from drowning, and the two cross paths for the first time. They soon discover they’re both attending the same theater school, too, and sparks begin to fly – despite Elisabeth’s attempts to keep her distance, as she is grieving the loss of her mother.JJ Plus E 2021 Full Movie Download
It isn’t long before the two truly connect; they may come from different worlds, but Elisabeth and John-John share something special, something that most of the people around them can’t really seem to understand. They joyfully rehearse for their upcoming performance at school, and sneak around behind Elisabeth’s father’s back, finding time to explore their city and fall more in love. This bliss can’t last forever, though, and when John-John is backed into a corner with no way out, the differences in their worlds threaten to tear them apart forever.The ensemble is wonderful, but Elsa Öhrn has a real star quality, giving off major Anna Chlumsky and Florence Pugh vibes with her performance. Whether she’s sulking at home, showing off her acting chops to John-John’s friends, or falling head over heels into young love, she’s utterly convincing, charming in an understated way that makes each one of her scenes thoroughly engrossing.JJ+E avoids the biggest sin committed by most teen dramas: it never gets soapy. The film creates a grounded world from the get-go, making Stockholm feel like any neighborhood, and John-John and his friends like kids we all went to school with. When the stakes get high and the drama gets intense, that sense of reality is still very much present, ensuring that the film’s heavier moments pack the punches necessary to make us really feel something (and fear for John-John’s future).
