Watch An Exclusive Rihanna-Themed Clip From Gripping Coming-Of-Age Film ‘Girlhood’

Written and directed by award-winning French film-maker Céline Sciamma, Girlhood is a gripping and relatable coming-of-age drama that follows a group of young black women on the cusp of becoming grown-ups in the Paris suburbs. In this exclusive clip, we see the girls let their hair down by singing and dancing along to Rihanna’s Sia-penned pop anthem ‘Diamonds’ – hey, don’t pretend you haven’t done the same. RiRi was so impressed with this uplifting clip when she saw it, she waived her usual (and presumably pretty high) licensing fee so Sciamma could use the song in the finished film.

Girlhood opens in UK cinemas on May 8.
