French (English subtitles)
French filmmaker Celine Sciamma builds on the promise of her acclaimed debut Water Lilies with a beautifully understated, naturalistic drama about childhood gender identity confusion that’s both touching and gently humorous. It centres on 10-year-old Laure, who has moved with her family to a new neighbourhood on the outskirts of Paris during the summer holidays. With her short-haired, boyish looks and tomboy ways, the local kids mistake her for a boy. Instead of correcting them, she introduces herself as Michael and starts living a double-life, with her parents unaware of her secret, and her six-year-old sister persuaded to play along. Her situation becomes more complicated as she grows closer to local girl Lisa, and tension builds around the fact her deception can't last forever.
