Buy Tickets

Double Feature with GIRLS TOWN (5:00, 9:30)

(2014) dir Céline Sciamma w/Karidja Touré, Assa Sylla, Lindsay Karamoh, Mariétou Touré, Idrissa Diabaté [113 min; DCP]
Fed up with her abusive family situation, lack of school prospects and the “boys’ law” in the neighborhood, Parisian teen Marieme reinvents herself after meeting a group of three free-spirited girls. This startlingly authentic film is told in a series of vignettes that track Marieme’s emergence from shy teen to assertive woman.

★★★★ “The movie captures that heady adolescent sense of time stopping and the moment mattering while standing far enough back to let us acknowledge all the pitfalls Marieme is moving too fast to see.” – Ty Burr, The Boston Globe

“‘Girlhood’ is a mesmerizing exercise in the enlightenment that can happen when a filmmaker shifts the male cinematic gaze ever so slightly and uncovers what looks like a whole new world.” – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post

“Beautifully observed, precisely directed and acted with wonderful conviction, it pulls us into the life of its protagonist in a deeply involving way.” – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
