► Portrait of a Lady On Fire, Water Lillies & Tomboy (MUBI)

Portrait of a Lady on Fire returns to MUBI, this time as part of its newly announced Library collection. You can also watch director Céline Sciamma’s earlier films, including the fresh-from-film-school debut feature, Water Lillies, where the paths of three 15-year-old girls living in a modern Paris suburb cross at the local swimming pool, where love and desire make a dramatic appearance.

Or why not watch Tomboy ? A masterclass in ambiguity and tenderness. It’s not often that gender identity is tackled with such delicacy and insight, almost making us forget about the politics in it.
