Girlhood

Drama 1h 53m 2014

AroView: Potent coming-of-age drama set on the margins of Paris that follows a 16-year-old girl whose poor prospects tempt her to join a girl gang to gain a sense of self confidence.

The director of TOMBOY and PORTRAIT OF A LADY ON FIRE provides a refreshing peek into a rarely-seen, exclusively black French subculture, while the pulsing urban soundtrack includes Rihanna’s “Diamonds”, elevated here in a memorable set-piece of ecstatic appreciation.

“It’s great to see a gritty girl-gang story that’s not a finger-wagging cautionary tale, or a grrrlpower fantasy.” ~KATE HARRIS, TOTALFILM
