Lukas Dhont’s European Discovery Award winner explores the conflict facing a teenager when their ambitions and gender identity collide. Dhont’s film also won the Camera d'Or for Best First Feature and Queer Palm at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival, and the London Film Festival's First Feature Competition Winner 2018. Victor Polster is remarkable as 15-year-old Lara, committed to becoming a professional ballerina but faced with the challenges presented by her rapidly developing body. With the support of her father, she throws herself into this quest for the absolute at a new school. Lara's adolescent frustrations and impatience are heightened as she realises her body does not bend so easily to the strict discipline due to being born a boy. The resulting film has attracted controversy and acclaim in equal measure. Featuring an introduction from writer-director Lukas Dhont. ★★★★ "This profound portrait of a ballet dancer's transition outshines the controversy around it" - Eleanor Halls, The Telegraph ★★★★ "The sheer sustained intensity of the drama and performances carry it through." - Peter Bradshaw's Film of the Week, The Guardian ★★★★ " Clever, probing, brave" - Nigel Andrews, Financial Times ★★★★★ "One of the most agonisingly well-observed films about being an adolescent that I’ve ever seen" - Nicholas Barber, BBC
