Here is a cool film that I saw today about A girl Marianne who goes to school in the suburb of Paris meet those 3 girls and suddenly everything changes for her , she became this intimidating bully at school start stealing technically she became an other girl named Vic dealing drugs for one of the main drug dealer. Her brother who is a little bit of a dick is trying to set her straight without success . Marianne fells her grade and figure out that school is not for her. These are girls that are dreaming of the bling bling and of a better life with money of course. They are girls that are strong willed and for a day in a hotel room that they rented they dream of a better life. But unfortunately  Marianne is going to find out the hard way that you need a structure loving family and graduate from High school to get a better life. Sciamma who wrote the script has done an outstanding job at it, it is raw and fresh new look at it.
