Critic Reviews for Girl
Where most queer films are about external conflicts and prejudice, Lara's primary conflict in this movie is with what she sees in the mirror.
Dhost's nonjudgmental film doesn't traverse new territory for a trans film, and it features too much dancing, but it benefits from its authenticity.
This isn't just a trans story -- it's also a broader story of becoming, and the bold steps required to get there.
Looks terrific, is not afraid to tackle a number of difficult subjects and features a star-making performance from acting and dancing talent Victor Polster.
How to stand out and blend in at the same time? Few films convey that tension better than "Girl," a deeply humane first feature from Belgian director Lukas Dhont about a boy who wants to be a ballerina.
