MGFF21: My First Summer (MA 15+)

MGFF21: My First Summer movie poster

A gorgeous, Australian lesbian coming-of-age film to tug at your heartstrings and fill you with memories of your first love.

In My First Summer, 16-year-old Claudia has been raised in total isolation from society by her recently deceased mother. Now completely on her own on her property, she is surprised when Grace, a spirited teenaged girl appears from a nearby town.

This beautifully shot film is at once a classic Australian story and a breath of fresh air. The two girls find themselves, and one another as they teeter on the cusp of first love, womanhood, past trauma and having their idyllic freedom torn away from them by the outside world.

A sometimes dark, always stunning film about first love and discovering your sexuality.

Content Warning: Suicide themes.
