August '16 - Tomboy Movie Review.
purchased a movie on blu-ray recently from
ebay. As well as feedback they allow reviews
of certain products to be written. This is
what I wrote about it.
mention too much as to avoid spoilers but
this movie is about a girl named Laure who
moves into a new house with her father,
pregnant mother and younger sister. Laure has
short hair and is androgynous in her
appearance and behaviour. Her younger sister
on the other hand is very feminine. While
making new friends a girl asks Laure what her
name is and on the spur of the moment Laure
says Michael and from that moment pretends to
be a boy. As the story continues Laure has to
find more and more elaborate ways to keep the
lie from being revealed. In many ways the
plot resembles a comedy but this is a serious
drama. At no point is it revealed as to why
Laure pretended to be a boy leaving it open
to many interpretations.
French movie and is subtitled. The extras on
the disc include interviews with the director
CÚline Sciamma, and a Making Of featurette
which is very interesting.
