Review: Naturalistic and gripping, this Swedish import transcends the cliché it could have been and becomes something more unusual: a teen drama that actually feels like it could be telling a true story. Young Royals’ awareness of the ways class, privilege, and race intersect with identity feels incredibly forward-looking.
Verdict: Worth the Popcorn
