Mignonnes is a coming-of-age drama in which Amy, an 11-year-old girl, is split between her traditional roots and the desire of being part of the dance group named ‘’the cuties’’. Join Barbara for an online discussion after you watch – at your leisure, Mignonnes.
Maïmouna Doucouré won a Best Director Award at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival for this movie, which she wanted to be a critic of the hyper-sexualization of pre-adolescent girls.
The movie is available to watch on Netflix. Please watch the movie ahead of time.
