FILM NET­FLIX, FROM FRI­DAY Bel­gian di­rec­tor Lukas Dhont’s de­but movie is an emo­tional, heart­felt drama that won sev­eral awards at last year’s Cannes Film Fes­ti­val, in­clud­ing one for its teenage star Vic­tor Pol­ster (above). It’s his first act­ing role, but he de­liv­ers a per­for­mance that is wise be­yond his years as Lara, a 15-year-old trans­gen­der girl who has two goals in life – to un­dergo gen­der­re­as­sign­ment surgery and be­come a prima bal­le­rina. How­ever, Lara’s im­pa­tience may get in the way of mak­ing her dreams come true.
