Johanna Morrigan (Beanie Feldstein) is a sixteen-year-old, extrovert from the outskirts of Wolverhampton with raging hormones and gigantic dreams. Even though she loves her big, boisterous family, Johanna yearns to get out and make a name for herself - which she does, reinventing herself as revered and feared music critic, Dolly Wilde. As she slaughters her way to greater and greater success, the lines between Johanna Morrigan and Dolly Wilde begin to haze. She has finally figured out how to build a girl - but is this the girl she wanted to build? Based on Caitlin Moran's book of the same name, 'How to Build a Girl' is an irreverent coming of age comedy about what it's really like to be a girl.
