Lara is a teenager with a passion for ballet. She moves to another city with her father and little brother to attend a prestigious ballet school, to which she dedicates her entire self. In fact, her biggest challenge is to deal with her body and nature.
Awarded in Cannes, inspired by a true story, the film directed by Lukas Dhont (Belgium 2018, 105 minutes) has the dramatic talent of superimposing the bloody sacrifices of dance training with demanding hormone therapy, concentrating the dream of art and normality in a single path littered with traces of martyrdom.
Film at MAXXI is aFondazione Cinema per Roma/CityFest and Fondazione MAXXI coproduction.
