__

With Girlhood, Céline Sciamma (Portrait of a Lady on Fire) interrogates the construction of female identity by immersing us in the daily life of Marieme, a teenager from the Parisian suburbs in search of freedom.

Oppressed by her family setting, dead-end school prospects and the boys law in the neighborhood, Marieme starts a new life after meeting a group of 3 free-spirited girls. As she falls further under their bravado and volatile energy, she begins making brave and foolish choices.
