Léora Barbara, Karole Rocher, Benjamin Biolay, Melissa Rodrigues, Laëtitia Guerard, Guillaume Depardieu / Fiction / French
A smart, witty and stylish account of an eventful French girlhood.
It’s 1977, and Stella Vlaminck (note the director’s initials for a hint as to the film’s autobiographical origins) is an eleven year old with an unusually old soul. Raised by young parents who run a bar and like a good time, she’s out of place at her posh school, and torn between her desires to belong and rebel. Alive with spot-on period detail and irreverent wit, this is a film to fall in love with.
