New DVD/VOD: Girlhood (15)

Raw, raucous but tender look at a group of black high school students living in the tough banlieues of Paris.

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.
