I haven’t put a leotard on in quite a while, but this film makes me feel like digging one out. Joking aside,, Girl, directed by Lucas Dhont, looks very interesting indeed. It’s about a ballet dancer who, although born a boy, trains as a girl. The Guardian is hailing it as the most important trans film in years. “In May, Girl premiered to a standing ovation at the Cannes film festival, winning a prize for its 17-year-old male star Victor Polster and three more awards including the Caméra d’Or. Netflix bought the US release and there was a Golden Globe nomination (“the ceremony was surreal, watching Lady Gaga and her amazing lavender dress”).” It’s good to see stories like this finally starting to be told in the mainstream, and I’m looking forward to checking it out. The trailer hints that it explores the line between masculine and feminine in a fascinating, powerful way.
