Stiliagi / Hipsters

2009; directed by Valerii Todorovskii;125 minutes

Highlighting the rebellious youth scene of the Soviet 1950s, Hipsters follows the fate of a group of friends who provoke the regime by wearing extravagant clothes, listening to forbidden music, and purchasing outlawed Western items. Filled with musical numbers and bright colors, the film—while highly entertaining—has also drawn criticism for not accurately portraying the historical time period in which it takes place.
