Before she has a chance to celebrate setting the date for her gender confirmation surgery, 18-year-old Lola (striking trans newcomer Mya Bollaers) faces immeasurable grief when her mother suddenly dies. With her biggest supporter gone, Lola is forced to reunite with her uncaring and bigoted father Philippe, who disowned her years prior.

 

To honor her mother’s last wishes, Lola and her father must tolerate each other long enough to venture up the Belgian coast, where haunting and painful memories await and harbored secrets come to light. With her strawberry-lemonade locks and skateboard affixed to her back like a bow and arrow, Bollaers is magnificent in her acting debut, easily holding her own opposite veteran actor Benoît Magimel. Combining a gritty realism with a delicate coming-of-age story, filmmaker Laurent Micheli’s sophomore feature—boasting a pitch-perfect soundtrack featuring Boy George, 4 Non Blondes, and Anohni—is a deeply moving portrait of two people who must find common ground in order to live with each other authentically.  — Jesse Knight
