Movie Moles: Tomboy
Denise Morris and Iven Hale review the French-film "Tomboy", written and directed by Céline Sciamma. It features Zoé Héran as a young girl (Laure) who is taken for a boy (Michaël) when she moves into a new neighborhood, an identification she doesn't rejects. They respond to the critics characterization of the protagonist's identity. This this end, they reflect on what they describe as the quietness of the film, which in turn has the adult world scrambling to put a label on this film. In the end, they raise a question about the film's title they don't think is addressed in the film itself.
