2014 | Argentina | Martín Shanly | ★★★
Driven by Rosario Shanly's compellingly enigmatic central performance, Argentinian actor Martín Shanly's directorial debut, About Twelve, provides an often fascinating, if never entirely convincing, portrait of a young girl suffering, both academically and socially, through early adolescence.
"Twelve-year-old Juana goes to a British school on the outskirts of Buenos Aires, where she fails both socially and academically. A week away from the exams that will determine her future in the institution, she is surrounded by the same routine; going to class and trying to pull her social life back together, with useless attempts in between. Juana goes through these strange days apparently feeling indifferent towards the situation." TMDb
