Our take

Much like Boyhood, Sébastien Lifshitz artfully embeds the process of growing up into this award-winning documentary, which deftly chronicles the lives of two teenage girls over five years. A poignant look at the bliss and agony of teenage girlhood and the forks in the path of coming of age.
