Miss Sweden, originally titled Fröken Sverige, is a 2004 Swedish film directed by Tova Magnusson-Norling. The film tells the story of Moa (Alexandra Dahlström), who lives by herself in a cottage in the forest, and has a dead-end job in a toilet paper factory. She is trying to find herself; she has a dead-end job, yet has a talent for computer layouts and photography; she is an activist on causes such as veganism and anti-capitalism, accompanying her friends on demonstrations, but it seems that she may be doing this just to fit in. When at home, by herself, she listens to commercial pop music and uses make-up. As the story progresses, it transpires that she lacks self-esteem, and is used and abused by what she takes to be her friends. Boys are happy to have sex with her, but dump her soon afterwards. She begins to gain self-confidence as she comes into contact with Jens (Leo Hallerstam), a troubled teenager whom the local authorities have entrusted to Moa's parents, perennial foster parents and do-gooders, to look after.

Awards[edit]

For her role as Moa, Alexandra Dahlström won the Best Young Actress from the Northern Countries (Bester Jungdarstellerin aus nordischen Ländern) in the Undine Film Awards in Austria.
