About Femme

Following a stunning performance as his drag persona Aphrodite Banks, Jules (Nathan Stewart-Jarrett) is violently attacked by a gang of young men, whose ringleader Preston (George MacKay) was making eyes at Jules mere minutes before. The homophobic attack causes Jules to retreat into himself, until a chance encounter with Preston points him in the direction of revenge. But as their relationship develops, so do the complications.

A taut character study of the disguises of masculinity, Femme sets the stage for two of our most malleable young actors to deliver career-peak performances. In their debut feature writer-directors Sam H. Freeman and Ng Choon Ping have crafted a tense, stylish thriller about desire and self-loathing.
