Girlhood Honeytrap green lights

Two films about poor black teen girls offer harrowing — and very universal — portraits of how our culture tries to crush the spirit out of all girls.
I’m “biast” (pro): I’m desperate for stories about girls and women

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

both films first viewed during the 58th BFI London Film Festival


See also my #WhereAreTheWomen rating of Girlhood for its representation of girls and women.
