Exploring Queer themes on The Big Screen

October 2018: Reinventing Marvin (2017)

Director: Anne Fontaine
Cast: Finnegan Oldfield, Grégory Gadebois, Vincent Macaigne, Isabelle Huppert
Certificate: 15

Running Time: 115 minutes 

Genre: Drama
Language: English

Reinventing Marvin tells the true story of Marvin Bijou (rising star Finnegan Oldfield), a young boy from a working-class family in a small village, suffers constant bullying at school and home for being ‘different’ – too sensitive and too feminine. A chance encounter with a drama teacher opens the doors to a world that offers him the chance to escape his situation.

Following Marvin into his mid-twenties as a theatre student in Paris, Fontaine presents a richly layered tale about identity building and transformation. With an exquisite cameo from Isabelle Huppert and great performances from the reliably excellent Vincent Macaigne and Charles Berling, the film packs a powerful punch.
