directed by Lukas Dhont, Belgium/Netherlands 2018, 105'
A subtle portrait of a girl trapped in a boy’s body. Lara dreams of becoming a woman and a dancer. Before her—the unique yet complicated entrance into adulthood, experiencing new desires, and, creating an identity. Girl is a mature, moving film about the difficulty of accepting one’s own body and the exhausting fight with its limitations, but it is also an emotional story about following one's dreams. In the title role, the phenomenal Victor Polster, awarded at Cannes.
