Mimmi is a surly teenager with an unworn sequin dress in her closet and a job at a local smoothie stand. Luckily, she works with her best friend, Rönkkö, whom she loves fiercely even when Rönkkö drags her to house parties in the suburbs. At one of these parties, she sees Emma, a single-minded figure skating prodigy who has yet to consider a life outside of the sport she loves more than anything. While Mimmi and Emma navigate their unexpected first love, Rönkkö is determined to experience pleasure for herself. Addressing issues of sexual orientation, family abandonment, and performance pressure, GIRL PICTURE gracefully presents an authentic story encapsulating the exhilaration and misery of the early years of romantic exploration. Normalizing the inherent awkwardness of sex, centering on female desire and pleasure, and promoting clear communication about sexual needs and consent, this feature posits a tale of young women being given the space to explore, learn, and grow in their own time, and is a celebration of that journey. —J.H.
