  • Beautifully photographed by Crystel Fournier, Sciamma's film has a floaty weightlessness (as opposed to the heavyosity of "Boys Don't Cry") that neither judges nor pathologizes Laure. show more

  • Tomboy is one of those little big films whose simplicity and concision suggest the excess of meaning that language (cinematic or otherwise) could never account for. show more

  • Laure is pleasingly uncute, with a gruff demeanor that gives way to affecting glimpses of vulnerability. show more
