“Céline Sciamma’s Girlhood can be described (like so many movies these days) as a coming-of-age story, and it honors the genre, and its main character, with exemplary sensitivity and sympathy. But even as she stops at familiar stations on the road to maturity — problems at home and school, new friendships and first love — Ms. Sciamma revels in the risky, reckless exuberance of adolescence and in the sheer joy of filming it. [...] While the movie has a lot to say about the general condition of being a girl, in the Paris banlieues and elsewhere, it never loses sight of the specific girl at its heart.” A. O. Scott, New York Times
