Director: Lukas Dhont
Stars: Victor Polster, Arieh Worthalter, Katelijne Damen
Lara is turning 16, with a loving father who has moved job and home to enable her ballet school dream. Fitting in isn’t simple – her pointe work is weak, and her peer relationships charged with curiosity, as Lara was born a boy. Her excitement at starting hormonal treatment curdles to anxiety as these stresses mount, and her desire for privacy becomes more urgent… Polster – a 14-year-old, cisgender boy – gives an astonishing, heartrending performance in this Cannes Queer Palme winner, whose realism only makes its drama more compelling.
Lukas Dhont’s astonishing debut feature is a quietly powerful and nuanced trans rite-of-passage story – Katherine Mclaughlin, Sight & Sound
