Teen angst with a mysterious twist…

Based on the best selling novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist, Let the Right One In is an absorbing and ethereal tale of friendship, rejection and unconditional love. Bullied at school, 12-year-old Oskar dreams of revenge. He practises knife skills and imagines a time when he’ll be ready to stand up to his tormentors. That day nears when he meets strange new neighbour Eli and, as their friendship grows, Oskar realises that she will change his life forever.
