Now streaming: Danish coming of age film, One of the Boys

New Danish film One of the Boys has made its exclusive US/CA premiere on the Viaplay streaming service.

Called “Eminently bingeable” (EDGE),“a Queer series that will move you” (Instinct), and “a must-watch this Pride Month” (Pink News), LGBTQ+ coming of age drama, One of the Boys, is now available to binge on Nordic streamer Viaplay.

A coming-of-age miniseries that works with themes such as sexuality, masculinity, bullying, and queerness it’s a sensitive, funny, heartbreaking and poetic glimpse of a small, hyper masculine provincial town in Denmark as one boy feels pressure to fit in with other boys, while struggling with his romantic feelings for a charming new boy.

Creator/director/co-writer Teys Schucany and co-writer Frederik Rye Nielsen have beautifully shot this film in the Scandinavian countryside. One of the Boys is part of the Viaplay Original Talent Awards, three shortform series supporting new Scandinavian creators. Three novice filmmakers were selected from a Nordics college competition and given access to Viaplay’s production resources to shoot their series, featuring satirical horror No Angel, romantic drama One of the Boys, and dystopian drama The Architect, which received a Special Mention at the Berlinale Series.
