Girl 12 rating

Le’Shantey Bonsu gives a stunning performance as a young girl deeply connected to her mother (Déborah Lukumuena) in Adura Onashile’s tender drama.

Drama 2022 87 mins

Director: Adura Onashile



Grace and Ama have each other and that’s all they need. Their lives are confined to their Glasgow flat, with Grace leaving only for her job as a cleaner and forbidding Ama to set foot outside. But as Ama becomes more inquisitive, Grace is forced to confront the traumas of her past in order to let the world in. This confident feature follows up on the promise of Onashile’s acclaimed short film work.

Girl was made with the support of the BFI, awarding National Lottery funding.
