ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents: Tomboy. A family moves into a new neighborhood on the outskirts of Paris. One of the daughters, 10-year-old Laure, goes to play with the other kids and is immediately mistaken for a boy. Rather than correcting them, she decides to present herself as the male Mikael. With her short hair and plain exterior, the community immediately accepts that Laure is a boy, even prompting one of the young girls to fall in love with "him," and soon she cannot turn back from the identity she has presented. Director C���éline Sciamma, in her second feature film, presents a fascinating look at gender performance in those too young to comprehend it.
