Fitting In film image

Lindy (Maddie Ziegler) has a problem. She’s 16, doing well in school, and she has a boyfriend in her sights… But a routine gynecological examination reveals her body doesn’t conform to expectations, not her own and not society’s. Born with a rare reproductive syndrome, she is told she will never conceive and penetrative sex will require medical intervention. The revelation sends Lindy into a spin. Shying away from her friends and acting out against the sympathetic overtures of her therapist mom (Emily Hampshire), she tries to figure it all out on her own. But that only makes everything worse. The second feature from Molly McGlynn (Mary Goes Round) resonates strongly with contemporary debates around sex, gender, and what it means to be a woman. McGlynn’s very personal stake in this story can be felt not only from its intimate details but from the copious, hard-won humour she finds in even the most trying circumstances.

Personal, raw, and at times wickedly funny, the film is an excellent showcase for Ziegler, whose natural performance leaves a lasting impression.
