Not to be confused or connected with the Richard Linklater movie, here’s the UK trailer for Girlhood. The movie comes from Tomboy / Water Lilies director Céline Sciamma. The film is a portrait of female friendship and fresh coming of age story.

The movie played at Cannes Film Festival 2014 to rave reviews. It hits UK cinemas 8th May and you can see the trailer and images from the movie below.

Girlhood stars Karidja Touré, Assa Sylla and Lindsay Karamoh.

Oppressed by her family setting, dead-end school prospects and the boys law in the neighborhood, Marieme starts a new life after meeting a group of 3 free-spirited girls. She changes her name, her dress code, and quits school to be accepted in the gang, hoping that this will be a way to freedom.
