Tomboy | French Film, Wine & Conversation
Laure is a ten year-old tomboy. When one summer she moves to a new area, she introduces herself as a boy named Mickaël. Everybody believes her and she has to live up to this new identity since it’s too late for the mistake to be clarified.
‘The performances of Zoé Héran as Laure and Jeanne Disson as Lisa are extraordinary and Sciamma’s direction is finely balanced between telling a story and raising questions of sexual identity.’ -Evening Standard
“Tomboy” won the Best Audience Award at the San Francisco International Lesbian & Gay Film Festival. Written and directed by Cécile Sciamma. Starring Zoé Héran, Malonn Levana and Jeanne Disson. 82 min. In French with English subtitles.
