Movie Reviews

The Film Stage - 9/10 by Rory O'ConnorThis effort to show Lara’s struggle like a coming-of-age story is what sets Girl apart. Dhont fleshes out his story with little growing-up moments everyone can relate to.
The Playlist - 9/10 by Jordan RuimyGirl has the power to not just change lives but reinvigorate your belief in cinema.
indieWire - 8/10 by David EhrlichFew narrative dramas (if any) have more sensitively explored the nuances of growing up transgender, the bravery required to transition, and the struggle for self-acceptance that can motivate or define that process. Likewise, few narrative dramas (if any) have more palpably distilled the pain of being deadnamed, the humiliation of being reduced to your body, and the cruelty of being misrepresented as something that you’re not.
Shadows on the Wall - 8/10 by Rich ClineThis is a film that takes Lara's situation seriously: it's never an issue for her, only for everyone around her, and it's their reactions that are a challenge. - 8/10 by Gary M. KramerDhost's nonjudgmental film doesn't traverse new territory for a trans film, and it features too much dancing, but it benefits from its authenticity.
Butaca Ancha - 8/10 by Jorge (JJ) NegreteGirl is a feat of sensitivity and a warm empathy lesson with an impressive pas de bourré. [Full Review in Spanish]
NOW Toronto - 8/10 by Paul EnnisBelgian dancer Victor Polster delivers a breathtaking, star-making performance that dominates the screen. Dhont's sensitive, empathetic direction keeps us riveted.
Ian Thomas Malone - 8/10 by Ian Thomas MaloneThe cisgender casting may have attracted the most controversy thus far, but Girl's biggest red flag is Dhont's flagrant obsession with the deterioration of Lara's genitals.
Variety - 8/10 by Peter DebrugeFor Lara, dancing matters more than dating, more than anything, and as such, Dhont’s relatively modest film manages to encompass the themes of both “Billy Elliot” and “Tomboy,” and deserves the recognition of both.
Screen International - 8/10 by Wendy IdeWhat’s crucial to the film’s success, however is the fact that, despite its candour about Lara’s pain, the film refuses to relinquish a note of hope.
