Winner of this year’s European Young Audience Award, this fresh coming-of-age drama centres on thirteen-year-old Aurore, trying to find her way between a beautiful older sister and a brainy younger one.
Newcomer Léna Magnien excels as the prickly teen, full of smart answers and inconstant personality traits. Her parents threaten boarding school, but an empathetic teacher and an offer to join a band give her new possibilities. The band’s friendship helps her open up, realise her own talent and create an opportunity for her family to see her in a different light.
Director’s note: Miss Impossible is a heartfelt look at finding one’s place in the world. Rebellious, awkward, thrilling!
Screening as part of the IFI French Film Festival 2016.
