Miss Impossible introduces us to a French middle-school student and her extraordinary, sometimes hilarious take on the world around her. Some would say Aurore (Léna Magnien) lives a boring life. But when you are a 13-year-old girl, and—just like her—have an uncompromising way of looking at boys, school, family or friends, life can seem like a merry psychodrama—especially with a new French teacher, the threat of being sent to boarding school, repeatedly falling in love, and the crazy idea of going on stage with a punk band of older boys. Adapted from Marie Desplechin’s best-selling Le journal d’Aurore book series, director Émilie Deleuze and newcomer Magnien breathe life into Aurore and her offbeat perspective.
