The Young Professionals Council of the Gay and Lesbian Center of OC Presents: Movie Night - Tomboy
Part of the mission of The Center OC, and thus its young professionals council, is to provide services that ensure the well-being and positive identity of the Orange County lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community. This film about a gender-variant child supports that mission by raising awareness of transgender and gender-variant individuals.
This month’s film synopsis:
A French family with two daughters, 10-year-old Laure and 6-year-old Jeanne, moves to a new neighborhood during the summer holidays. With her Jean Seberg haircut and tomboy ways, Laure is immediately mistaken for a boy by the local kids and passes herself off as Michael. Filmmaker Céline Sciamma brings a light and charming touch to this drama of childhood gender confusion. Zoe Heran as Laure/Michael and Malonn Levanna as Jeanne are nothing less than brilliant. This is a relationship movie: relationships between children, and the even more complicated one between one's heart and body. -- (C) Rocket Releasing
