Stella is an autobiographical 2008 French film directed by Sylvie Verheyde.


The film chronicles the daily life of an 11 year old Parisien girl: her unhappily married parents running a lively working class bar; their infidelity and alcoholism; engaging with the rough and sometime violent clientele; her smart school where she does not do well and is bullied; being left for the holidays with her grandmother and aunt in the country. Everywhere, she has to survive being somewhat of an outsider everywhere and make the most of her two friends.
