Critic Reviews for Girl
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.
Girl is a feat of sensitivity and a warm empathy lesson with an impressive pas de bourré. [Full Review in Spanish]
