Courgette is the nickname of a nine-year-old boy who’s sent to live in a rural orphanage after the death of his mother. There, a range of colourful, heart-capturing characters make up his new ménage. Céline Sciamma’s screenplay once again demonstrates her ability to authentically capture the joy and messiness of young friendship, yet not shy away from the tough reality of children growing up in difficult circumstances.

Also available on BFI Player
