Lara, a fifteen-year-old girl trapped in a boy’s body, dreams of becoming a ballerina.
Girl received numerous awards at the last edition of Cannes and went on to screen at many prestigious film festivals around the world. The film was also nominated for the Golden Globe awards.
“If the audience erupting into applause and cheers at the end of the premiere earlier today is any indication of the success and impact of this film, one can only say that Girl swept us away.”
– Zoe Tamara, The Upcoming
“This story of a trans teen who dreams of being a ballerina marks a stunning debut for both director Lukas Dhont and star Victor Polster.”
– Peter Debruge, Variety
