TOMBOY (Celine Sciamma, 2011)

***
France

10-year-old Laure and her family move to a new building, and she introduces herself to the local kids as Mikael.

The opening act in particular carries the inevitable whiff of the afterschool special. But Sciamma is a sharp-eyed storyteller with a feel for texture. And amazingly, none of the many children in the cast is irritating.
