Girl - Movie being screened in local cinemas


The feature filmmaking debut from writer-director Lukas Dhont, GIRL is an extraordinarily moving coming-of-age tale about identity and the journey to becoming who you’re meant to be.


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 to 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 transgender and the struggle that can motivate or define that process.
