Synopsis

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 three free-spirited girls. She changes her name, her dress code, and quits school to be accepted in the gang, hoping that it will be a way to freedom.

MUBI's take

One of the best coming-of-age films of our times, Céline Sciamma’s Girlhood follows a journey of self-discovery through the power of female friendship. By focusing on the lives of young Black women in Paris’ banlieue, Sciamma provides a kind of on-screen representation still too absent in cinema.
