Synopsis:
Marvin (Finnegan Oldfield) is different. He is a quiet, sensitive and artistic fifteen-year-old with an unwitting attraction to other boys. This makes him victim to forceful bullying, both at school and within the confines of his impoverished home, making his situation unbearable. With the support of his teacher, Marvin discovers his thirst for theatre, and its transformative power of becoming someone else. Refusing to be victimised, Marvin moves to Paris to reinvent himself. As a theatre student, he swiftly befriends the right people including legendary actress Isabelle Huppert (playing herself), and with her help, begins to exorcise the ghosts of his childhood.
Winner of the Queer Lion at the Venice International Film Festival, 'Reinventing Marvin' is a powerful, uplifting story of a young man's quest, against all odds, to be himself.

Disjointed at Times - Reinventing Marvin review by KW

Spoiler Alert
21/02/2019

Watchable film, but the swings from present day to childhood at times got in the way of my understanding of where the film was going. Visually good to look at especially some of the evocative scenes of rural France!

How to succeed with no chance - Reinventing Marvin review by CSF

Spoiler Alert
22/06/2020

Marvin has everything to fail his life and very little expectations. His childhood drives him to suffering and lack of understanding. It would lead him to a life of crime. And yet, he manages to 'think', to endure and to resist. By listening and using the best of the people he met, he finds the right path. A magnificent story, so well written and so well filmed.
