MARK KERMODE'S FILM OF THE WEEK
Girls Lost
Girls Lost

"Imagine ‘Stranger Things’ with Barb playing all the main characters," said Time Out of this Swedish fable in which three persecuted girls find their lives and bodies reshaped.

Their new and impermanent ability - to become boys - gives them a chance for justice, power and presence, but it comes at a substantial cost.

Gender, sexuality and identity are explored with assurance here, and the visuals match the performances for energetic wallop.
