The Girl

With her parents away on a trip and her aunt, who was supposed to be looking after her, eloping with a man she just met, the 10-year-old unnamed heroine of Fredrik Eldfeldt’s debut film is left to her own devices somewhere in Swedish countryside in the early 80s. Featuring stunning cinematography by Hoyte van Hoytema (Let the Right One In), ?The Girl? combines light-heartedness and sobriety in a moving coming of age tale that demonstrates how children’s fantasy worlds are often much more efficient than adults’ so-called ?reason?.
