  • Having seen the film, this cis critic certainly wouldn't claim to understand the reality of life as a trans person. It makes me want to, though.

  • Even disregarding the controversy, Girl does not work, mainly because Dhont's focus is all wrong.

  • An immersive, empathetic film that speaks the language of tolerance without getting preachy.

  • By helping Monsecour heal by sharing her story, Dhont has done a wonderful thing that speaks to his purposes and successes. I'll be interested to see whose story he tells next.

Audience Reviews for Girl

    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.
