Aroview: This Belgian drama was a hit at Cannes owing to it's grace and emotional depth. Transsexual teenager Lara is committed to becoming a professional ballerina but faces much more than the usual adolescent challenges when her body fails to conform to the discipline the same way as those born female. A story inspired by Nora Monsecour, a trans female dancer from Belgium.
