Patrik, Age 1.5 (Patrik 1.5)

Rated NR 98 min. 2010

Sven and Goran are a legally married gay couple who relocate to a suburban village to fulfill their dream of adopting a child. In the face of disapproval from their neighbors, the happy couple forges ahead through a rigorous and daunting approval process. Just when all hopes seem dashed, news comes of an available child: Patrik, Age 1.5. The couple prepare excitedly for the arrival of their one-and-a-half-year-old baby boy, unaware that a decimal mistake was made on the paperwork. When Patrik shows up, he is in fact 15, criminally delinquent, and homophobic. Instead of the happy family they had envisioned, the couple must find a way to navigate through the challenges of housing a troubled and troubling youth.
