Victor Polster makes an unforgettable screen debut as a teenager determined to make their dreams a reality. 15-year-old Lara (Polster) was born a boy and now longs for the day when she can have gender reassignment surgery. Her ambition is to become a ballet dancer. The daunting physical demands of the training combined with the changes in her life create a situation of almost unbearable daily pressures. Lukas Dhont’s beautifully realised debut feature sensitively captures all the complex feelings of this deeply moving coming-of-age story. 

Dhont delivers a beautiful portrait of humanism and authenticity with an emotional restraint that is damn-near impressive for such a young filmmaker.
