GIRLHOOD

Identity-crisis film set in a tough Paris suburb. 16year-old Marieme (Karidja Touré) joins a girl gang. Her changing personae are reflected by changing hairstyles: the tight braids of the schoolyard, the straightened locks of the mall, the platinum-blond wig of the dealer. Nicknamed Vic, she redefines herself, adopting boyish clothes, binding her breasts, taking the lead in a relationship with Ismaël (Idrissa Diabaté), moving towards A Room of One’s Own finale. A moving and often joyous film.
