GIRL (2018)
2018, Netflix, 105 min, Belgium, Dir: Lukas Dhont

Born with the body of a boy, 15-year-old Lara (Cannes Un Certain Regard Best Actor Victor Polster) deals with the challenges of both gender transition and her ambition to become a top ballerina. Dhont’s perceptive drama, which is based on a true story, features a fine supporting cast led by Arieh Worthalter as Lara’s understanding father. “This intriguing debut feature from Flemish director Lukas Dhont, in a completely natural mix of Dutch and French, looks terrific, is not afraid to tackle a number of difficult subjects and features a star-making performance from acting and dancing talent Victor Polster.” - Boyd van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter.
