Marvin Bijou (Finnegan Oldfield), a young gay boy from a working-class family in a small French village, suffers constant bullying at school and home for being 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. A compelling and searing chronicle by Anne Fontaine (The Innocents), Reinventing Marvin is a free adaptation of the critically acclaimed novel by Edouard Louis, The End of Eddy.
The screening on 11 Sept will no longer be followed by a Q&A with director Anne Fontaine due to unforeseen circumstances.
