* SmallTownBoredom: Elin, hardcore. One reason she drops the title of the film. Unfortunately, while the concept gets a good treatment in overall dialogue and character arcs, it's slightly marred by what seems to be big-city misconceptions about Swedish small-town life. To facilitate production, the film was actually shot in Trollhättan, a town that is five times larger and much more like a real city: this is ''not'' what a small town looks like in Sweden (for one thing, bridges like the one in the film are very rare).

* ExtremeDoormat: Johan is totally passive when Markus' jerkassness is concerned. It's quite implied that he hangs out with him only because as a popular guy, it's what he's expected to do.

** At her unwanted party, Agnes throws a fit at Viktoria, insulting her and even picking on her because she's disabled. Her parents call her out on it, and she later tries to apologize. Viktoria refuse to forgive her, mostly because it's true what Agnes said: They never liked each other, and they both knew it. They were "friends" because no-one else wanted them.

** It is quite common for people to date a lot or not at all before figuring they are gay. So, Elin is basically a wait-and-see case.

* NowWhat: The ending deliberately leaves many plot threads hanging (like [[spoiler:how coming out of the ([[IncrediblyLamePun water]]) closet affects the balance of power, or how Jessica will react upon finding out. Or if Jessica and Johan end up together--it is implied that she breaks up with Markus]])

* SpurnedIntoSuicide: Agnes over Elin's cruelty to her. It's not really a wholehearted attempt, and Elin interrupts it.
** Given her method, it's more likely Agnes was taking her emotions out on herself through cutting rather than really attempting suicide.

* VomitIndiscretionShot: After drinking most of a bottle of wine (straight out of the bottle) at the WildTeenParty, Elin runs to the bathroom and pukes into the toilet, in close-up.
** Her behaviour immediately afterward implies that she was doing this as an excuse to leave early. It's never revealed how much she drank, and she likely faked the vomiting, as she never says anything about being drunk.

** If she intended to commit sucide, then she was doing it wrong. It was more like emo-cutting herself, to balance off emotional pain with the physical one. I don't know the term for it.
