Céline Sciamma (Water Lilies) creates a subtle yet powerful portrait of family, personal identity and our all too human desire to fit in. Ten-year-old Laure is a tomboy, with short hair and a disdain for dresses. When her family moves to the outskirts of Paris, she lets a potential new friend mistake her for a boy. Though she enjoys her new persona, supported by wide-eyed younger sister Jeanne, it's only a matter of time before her parents and others begin to ask questions.

This excellent drama ... is the rare, modestly scaled film that bites off exactly what it's able to chew, and chews it perfectly. THE TELEGRAPH
