Girlhood

TAG LINE

One of the most exciting and authentic films to come out of France since Mathieu Kassovitz’s 1995 film La Haine.

DESCRIPTION

An intimate portrait of female friendship and a compelling coming-of-age story. Oppressed by her family setting, dead-end school prospects and the boys law in the neighbourhood, Marieme starts a new life after meeting a group of three free-spirited girls.

She changes her name, her style, and quits school to be accepted in the gang, hoping that this will be a way to freedom.

As she falls further under their gang lifestyle, she begins to make foolish choices that could impact her life forever.
