The hugely anticipated new film from writer/director Céline Sciamma (TomboyWater Lilies), Girlhood is a sensational story of female empowerment set in the tough neighbourhoods of Paris. 

Mariame (an incendiary, star-making performance from Karidja Touré) is a shy 16-year-old who lives with her mostly absent mother, a domineering older brother, and two younger sisters of whom she largely takes responsibility for caring. Left behind at high school where she’s told her grades are too poor to continue, Mariame is soon lured out of her shell by three vivacious neighborhood teens. Enthralled by their bravado and brash energy, Mariame quickly adopts their flashier look and adapts to their bolder and often reckless behavior, making both foolish and brave choices as she struggles towards independence.

Depicting a side of Paris rarely explored on screen, Girlhood finds irresistible energy in these young characters for whom attitude is everything. Featuring sumptuous cinematography and a jubilant soundtrack, the film builds momentum with every scene, and exudes life from every frame.
