A slimy, discombobulating, and weirdly cute fable about puberty from the perspective of a gloriously I-don’t-give-a-fuck teenage girl. Director Julia Ducournau subsequently bewitched everybody with the way more gnarly masterpieces RAW (2016) and TITANE (2021). However, JUNIOR almost belongs in the French school of harsh realist depictions of adolescence with its Jean-Pierre Léaud-level performance from Garance Marillier as the titular kid, until things start to mutate...
The short JUNIOR will be shown before the main feature TROUBLE EVERY DAY.
