‘Girlhood’ Review: Coming-of-Age Movie’s Empathy for Impoverished Teen Girls Curdles Into Pity

2 hours ago

It takes only a look to unsettle, even undo, a teenage girl. A look can be so many things at once: an ogling, a scrutiny, a provocation, a form of surveillance and control. In “Girlhood,” the roving eyes of older boys transform a throng of rowdy female athletes into a flock of disconcertingly meek mademoiselles, their heads sunk as low as they’ll go without dislocating any vertebrae. Those same girls can’t bear the aggressive stares of other girls, either. The hostile female gaze transfigures them into raving lunatics, suddenly seized by the urgent need to slam their knuckles into an enemy’s sneering, »

The trailer starts with Ted asking his pal John (Wahlberg) for a sperm donation to help him father children with a human bride, which naturally leads to a gross-out scene at a sperm bank that leaves Mark covered in human protein. »
