'Tomboy' screens for free tonight in Tompkins Square Park via Films on the Green

The 2019 Films on the Green series — focusing this year on female directors in French and Francophone cinema — comes to Tompkins Square Park tonight for a free screening.

The selection is Céline Sciamma's charming (and well-reviewed) drama from 2011 titled "Tomboy."

Quickie overview:

A family with two daughters, 10-year-old Laure and 6-year-old Jeanne, moves to a new suburban neighborhood during the summer holidays. With her Jean Seberg haircut and tomboy ways, Laure is immediately mistaken for a boy by the local kids, and decides to pass herself off as a boy.

And the trailer...

The film will start at dusk (give or take a few minutes).

And next week in TSP:

• July 12 — "Aya of Yop City" (Aya of Yogoupon) Directed by Marguerite Abouet & Clément Oubrerie, 2010, 1h 24, France-Ivory Coast

Films on the Green is produced annually in New York City parks by the French Embassy, FACE Foundation and NYC Parks.
