What's the story?

How To Build A Girl.

I'll need more information.

It's the film adaptation of Caitlin Moran's novel starring Beanie Feldstein as Johanna Morrigan, a curvy, bright, funny, working-class 16-year-old who, in 1993, leaves behind her chaotic family life in a Wolverhampton council estate for the bright lights of London.

What else?

Our heroine reinvents herself as eccentric, top-hat-wearing music critic Dolly Wilde – it is semi-autobiographical and based on the life of Moran who was an aspiring journalist in the 1990s, and had a similar upbringing as part of a large family on a council estate.

Moran worked on the screenplay for the coming-of-age comedy with Scottish writer John Niven. It is directed by Coky Giedroyc, known for Stella Does Tricks, Women Talking Dirty and The Virgin Queen.

Tell me about the cast.

There's the excellent Feldstein, who you may recognise from Booksmart and Lady Bird. How To Build A Girl also stars Emma Thompson, Paddy Considine, Alfie Allen and Chris O'Dowd.

Anything further?

The film was set to have its UK release on July 3 but with cinemas still closed then due to the coronavirus pandemic, will now be available for online streaming.
