How to Build A Girl

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

It’s 1993, and there’s only one way for a fat, bright, funny, working-class sixteen year old Johanna (Beanie Feldstein) to break out of her tiny, crowded house in Wolverhampton, and go on the somehow noble sex-quest she desires - to reinvent herself as swashbuckling, top-hat-wearing rock critic Dolly Wilde, and explode all over London. The only question is - was Dolly Wilde the right girl to build?
Based on Caitlin Moran's best-selling novel.
