Lukas Dhont, Belgium 2018
Language: French/Dutch, English subtitles
GIRL tells the story of 15-year-old Lara who wants to become a ballerina, with a classical training for female dancers. Lara is accepted in a ballet school and her dream seems closer than ever. But there is one problem: Lara was born into the body of a boy. A body that she will push to its limits in order for her to succeed.
‘ Where most queer films are about external conflicts and prejudice, Lara's primary conflict in this movie is with what she sees in the mirror.’
*CineVue -Girl is an extraordinarily moving film
*The Film Stage - This effort to show Lara’s struggle like a coming-of-age story is what sets Girl apart. Dhont fleshes out his story with little growing-up moments everyone can relate to.
