Trivia

Coming from a dance training, Victor Polster takes his first steps in front of a camera with Girl. About 500 people between the ages of 14 and 17 auditioned, both cisgender girls and boys and transgender people. Unable to find a convincing performer, the team turned to the cast of the dancers and discovered Polster, which matched what she was looking for. See more »

This is true cinematic brilliance
16 March 2019 | by moveebuff1953See all my reviews

Girl is the type of movie that will hopefully open your eyes and heart to the little known challenges that face someone caught in the wrong body. I fell in love with Lana almost immediately because of her sensitive, kind, passionate character. She brings you deep into her world of the pain it takes to hide her unwanted features with such elegance and composure. Even when egged on by fellow dancers she holds in her pain in hope of acceptance. Victor Polster is brilliant as the graceful and beautiful Lana. The determination, blood, sweat and tears it takes to be a ballerina is mind boggling but for Lara it is a passion she is not willing to give up on no matter what it takes.
