Water Lilies (2007)

Directed by
Céline Sciamma

Céline Sciamma's debut feature celebrates Sapphic love in the world of synchronised swimming. Set during a sultry summer in a French suburb, Marie is desperate to join the local pool's synchronised swimming team.

But is her interest solely for the sake of sport or for a chance to get close to Floriane, the bad girl of the team? Sciamma, and the two leads, capture the uncertainty of teenage sexuality with a sympathetic eye in this delicate drama of the angst of coming-of-age.
