    I'm riding on a wave of 5/5s, somebody stop me!

    Tomboy really is worthy of that rating. It's a really strange rating though, as there are elements that I want to criticise heavily, but know that my wanting to slam down on those elements is exactly what Sciamma wanted. Instead, I'll praise this film and rave about it for a little while!
