Ten year old Laure isn t like most girls. She prefers football to dolls and sweaters to dresses. When Laure, her parents and little sister Jeanne move to a new neighbourhood, family life remains much the same. That is, until local girl Lisa mistakes Laure to be a boy.
Indulging in this exciting new identity, Laure becomes Michael, and so begins a summer of long sunny afternoons, playground games and first kisses. Yet with the school term fast approaching, and with suspicions arising amongst friends and family, Laure must face up to an uncertain future.

In celebrating the last, perfect, unrepeatable summer of the titular 'Tomboy' we join a group of kids having the kind of childhood adventures we all imagine we had, or wish we could have experienced. You are swept along with the growing confidence of Michael as he realises he can successfully pass; his cautious exhilaration is intoxicating and absolutely sincere.
This film does not shy away from tackling the issues which cannot be ignored when talking about trans kids. Watching children's easy acceptance and tolerance be gradually inhibited by adults' fear makes this captivating and, at times, terrifying viewing.
No review of this film would be complete without talking about Zoé Héran's SPECTACULAR performance in the lead role. I kept catching myself mistaking this film for fact and reminding myself it was not; so convincing, honest and natural was her performance! An actress this young cast in such a challenging, understated role and pulling it off so completely is something I've never really seen before - the only comparison I can think of is Jodie Foster in Taxi Driver [DVD] , suffice to say, she does justice to both the story and spirit of the film.
Buy it, watch it, tell your friends. You won't regret it.
In either case, the scenario had to be handled sensitively and proficiently by the actors and directors concerned, to avoid their efforts descending into puerile comedic farce. Fortunately, in both cases, this has not happened.
Celine Sciamma's debut as a Director, 'Water Lilies'', was an almost claustrophobically tense dance of adolescent first love, lust, and friendship. This piece, however, retains the freedom and breathtaking joyousness of childhood, without seeking to mask the truth for the sake of an adult's eyes.
Zoe Heran is perfectly cast as Laure, the ten year old girl who slips into the persona of Michael without a backward glance when she and her family move to a new neighbourhood. She is to be commended for her bravery in taking on this role, as it cannot be easy for a child to be told that they would do well playing the opposite sex. Casting Zoe Heran's real life friends in the film was a masterstroke, as their presence on screen gives the film a fly-on-the-wall feel that just helps to extend the naturally joyous feel of childhood to the viewer.
Inevitably, any serious film collector or fan thinking of buying this film may seek comparisons between Laure and characters such as Saga (Melinda Kinnaman) in 'My Life As A Dog. Don't. This film is very much in the neo-realist tradition of modern european cinema and, as such, the situation in which Laure finds herself is very naturalistic.Read more ›
