Overview

To celebrate the arrival of Céline Sciamma's stunning Portrait of a Lady on Fire, we’re revisiting her tender and thoughtful coming-of-age tale Tomboy (2011). A French family with two children, 10-year-old Laure and 6-year-old Jeanne, moves to a new neighbourhood over the summer holidays. Mistaken for a boy by the local children, Laure (Zoé Héran) decides to be introduced as “Mickäel” and quickly finds a group of new friends. Navigating the difficulties of gender expression while still immersed in all the play and growth of childhood, Mickäel finds both belonging and alienation in the process of coming of age.

Why You Should See This Film

Marked by Sciamma’s unfailingly perceptive screenwriting and graceful directorial touch, Tomboy is a thoughtful portrait of youth that somehow manages to avoid cliche and self-seriousness. Featuring a remarkable leading performance from Zoé Héran, it’s a complex and beautifully shot story that pairs perfectly with the director’s latest award winner.
