Laure is a 10-year-old girl settling into her new home in Paris. She meets Lisa, one of the neighborhood’s children and introduces herself as Mikäel. Lisa instantly assumes the she is a boy. Lisa then introduces Mikäel to the rest of the neighbourhood children stating that he is the new kid in the apartment complex. But Lisa soon realises that Mikäel is Laure !
The film opened to positive reviews, with critics praising the directing as well as the performances of the children, particularly Zoé Héran as the lead. In tune with the emotions and tribulations of childhood, Tomboy is a charming movie that exhibits warmth and sensitivity.
