Audience Reviews for Girl

  • Oct 21, 2018
    Despite its questionable casting (although we can understand the difficulty of finding a transgender actress for the role) and an ending that feels like a cop-out, Lukas Dhont creates a sensitive film that makes us share the character's anguish as she struggles with self-acceptance.
