When Laure arrives at her new neighborhood in the outskirts of Paris, she ventures outside to meet the local kids. Mistaken for a boy by a potential new friend Lisa, she decides, on the spur of the moment, to give her name as Mikaël. As they become closer, Lisa does not know that her new best friend is a girl. Sophmore director Celine Sciamma’s striking debut, Water Lilies, marked her as a name to watch, and she doesn’t disappoint with this intimate drama of female sexuality.
