OUTSOUTH Film Festival Presents

Girl Picture

Centerpiece Selection!

Themes: Lesbian, Romance, Drama

Told with piercing authenticity and depth, “Girl Picture” captures a vivid snapshot of a liminal moment in the lives of a trio of young women. Flaunting a seductive soundtrack and dreamy atmosphere, this poignant crowd-pleaser—which nabbed an audience award at the Sundance Film Festival—is a refreshingly original and defiantly queer coming-of-age tale. Cheeky and unfiltered best friends Mimmi and Rönkkö spend their Fridays afterschool working the smoothie bar at the mall. Over the course of three consecutive weekends, both teens experience a series of firsts while navigating the rocky road from adolescence to womanhood. Angsty Mimmi’s turbulent home life results in violent outbursts in class, while Rönkkö’s insatiable thirst for pleasure leaves behind a trail of cringeworthy and dissatisfying hookups. When Mimmi ignites a whirlwind romance with Emma, an ardent figure skater striving for champion status, the emotional stakes for all three young women raise to new and uncharted heights. 

In Finnish and French with English subtitles.
