6th Oct- Girl like you, (M) Netflix 1h
When Lauren first saw L smashing out the drums on stage, with smudged eyeliner, knotted hair, and ripped jeans, she fell in love. L had been open about identifying as transgender but was still physically presenting as male and certain they'd stay that way. Six months into their relationship, L tells Lauren that they want to medically transition genders, change pronouns from He too She, and become Elle. Over six years, we watch a couple desperate to stay together, as they navigate the effects of new body parts, changing gender roles as well as battling their own evolving sexual identities. Girl, Like You uses the dramatic reality of changing genders while in a relationship to explore the larger thematic questions of the fluidity of gender and sexual identity, and the self-sacrifice required to nurture a lover through life.
