Synopsis
Just when Lola, 18 years old and transgender, learns that she can finally have surgery, her mother, who is her only financial support, passes away. Abiding by her mother’s last wishes, Lola and her father, who are permanently in conflict and have not seen each other for two years, undertake a journey all the way to the Belgian coast. They realize the outcome of the journey may not be the one they were both expecting...

« The biggest surprise is LOLA by the Belgian director Laurent Micheli who broaches the transgender topic in a luminous way, simultaneously trivial and emotional.” "Along the young Mya Bollaers, a true rising star, Benoit Magimel is wonderful. »

PREMIERE

« By entrusting this role to an actress herself trans, Laurent Micheli succeeds in the miracle of which the cinema, be it francophone or Hollywood, is so often incapable: to respect the identity of the transgender people." "LOLA is a generous and refreshing film. Poignant and fair. Hard and soft. Committed and necessary. »
