This Clip From “Girlhood” Is the Perfect Antidote To “Boyhood'”

The Sundance Film Festival has started, and one of the movies to come out of it is Celina Sciamma’s “Girlhood,” the coming-of-age story we all need. It’s about Marieme, a Black teenager growing up in the projects near Paris, and how she falls in with a tough girl gang. This scene, which Vulture premiered exclusively today, is a joyous, giddy celebration of friendship. These girls, dancing to Rihanna in a hotel room they rented with money they stole, are the perfect embodiment of that soul-swallowing, bone-crushing female friendship you experience in your teens. The film opens in New York on January 30th, and will certainly show up at a indie movie theater near you. [Vulture]
