Synopsis

Victor Polster, Arieh Worthalter, Oliver Bodart, Tijmen Govaerts, Katelijne Damen.


Inspired by a true story, writer-director Lukas Dhont's multi-award winning debut feature extraordinarily powerful and moving coming-of-age tale about identity and the journey to becoming who you are meant to be.


Lara, a teenage girl born in a boy's body and desperate for her body to reflect her true identity dreams of becoming a professional ballerina. At her new ballet school Lara approaches her dancing much as she does her life, with meticulous, relentless, even punishing discipline. But all the usual frustrations, impatience and challenges of adolescence are only heightened by her transgender identity.


With an an astonishing performance from newcomer Victor Polster (Best Actor Cannes 2018), GIRL is an emotional roller coaster of a movie - both as a powerful and sensitive depiction of growing up transgender and as an exploration of the psychological and physical struggle in the journey from adolescent to adult.
