‘I love that I can give you pleasure…’

Three very different yet equally confused girls grapple with love, ambition, pleasure, responsibility and their very imminent adulthood.

Awkward sex, broken promises, hurled smoothies and excellent pop music form the lifeblood of this totally charming Finnish flick that places young women and their desires centre stage.

As more and more queer kids are able to come out and be accepted by their adolescent peers, we need stories that bridge the gaps between us – Girl Picture does this and more, with a big heart and a delicious sense of fun.

This is future-facing storytelling from the next queer generation, and a delightful way for GAZE 2022 to end.


For lovers of…  Book Smart, Blue Is The Warmest Colour, Animals
