The Cannes Camera d’Or winner is a striking debut about a teenage transgender girl training to be a ballerina whilst undergoing a taxing physical transformation.

15-year-old Lara was born in a boy’s body and wants nothing more than to be a ballerina. Her family, and particularly her father, is very supportive of her aspirations. As Lara goes through the physical endurance required of a ballerina, she also faces the psychological and physical challenges of the transition. At the same time, Lara is developing her first attractions, and the burdens of adolescence seem all the heavier. A deeply humane and realistic film, Girl refreshingly posits a fundamentally supportive environment for the protagonist, but makes clear the challenges all the same. With a brilliant central performance and clear, empathetic direction, Girl deservedly won a number of prizes at Cannes.

Girl (an important film and a great one) channels love and compassion and is…more powerful for it. – Rory O’ Connor, The Film Stage
