Girl

Cinema

Directed by Lukas Dhont | 2018 | Belgium | French, Flemish, English – English subtitles | Starring Victor Polster, Arieh Worthalter, Oliver Bodart | 1hr 45m | Certificate 15

Determined 15-year-old Lara (an astonishing performance from newcomer Victor Polster) is a young woman who is fiercely committed to becoming a professional ballerina. She throws herself into this quest at a new school, but finds the usual frustrations and challenges of adolescence are heightened as her body does not bend so easily to the strict ballet discipline because she was born a boy.

Though supported by her family, Lara’s adolescent frustrations and impatience are heightened as she prepares for gender reassignment surgery, pushing her body to its limits. 
Based on empowering real-life experiences, the award-winning Girl is a powerful and sensitively told story about the nuances of growing up
