    Film

    Queen of Niendorf
    Germany — US Premiere
    Joya Thome, 2017, 67 min
    In German with English subtitles
    Recommended ages 9+

    The classic boys-coming-of-age drama (think Stand By Me) gets a thoughtful, feminist update in the luminously filmed The Queen of Niendorf. Ten-year-old Lea is bored of the vapid aspirations of most tween girls. So she alternates between lazily cycling through her sleepy village and the thrumming excitement of two new discoveries: a makeshift raft and treehouse boys’ club. Skeptical because she’s a girl, the club members make her prove her mettle. Lea realizes that true bravery is not just what you do, but sometimes what you don’t do—and isn’t afraid to prove it to them.
