Ballerina movies always fascinate us for some reason. Probably because it’s such a whole other lifestyle than our daily routine of sitting on the sofa and trying to keep our balance while walking on a treadmill.
In the Golden Globe-nominated Girl, however, the demanding world of ballet gets a new spin thanks to the main character being a boy readying for gender confirmation surgery. Based on a true story, this drama brings every emotion to the screen with powerful performances that almost make the subtitles unnecessary.\
Puberty is challenging for everyone, but for transgender teens it’s a different struggle entirely.
But one achievable with unparalleled grace.
