Girlhood Trailer


With Richard Linklater’s Boyhood looking like the current favourite to win Best Picture at the Academy Awards next month, an interesting counterpoint to his film is also about to arrive on U.S. shores. CĂ©line Sciamma’s Girlhood premiered at Cannes last year where it earned rave reviews of its own and plenty of praise for its powerful coming of age story. The movie revolves around a young girl living in the suburbs of Paris who attempts to escape an abusive family life after meeting a new group of friends. However, peer pressure eventually leads her down a dangerous path as she pursues true freedom and independence. Girlhood hits select theatres on Jan. 30th; check out the trailer after the jump and let us know what you think.

    Read this as “Girlwood Trailer” and now I’m disappointed…

    It won’t be in any theaters near me. so I’ll have to wait for it on Amazon. Looks good, though.

    Should have changed the name though.. Just seeing the poster, I thought it was one of those Transmorphers knock offs..
