White Girl is a 2008 BBC film written by Abi Morgan, made as part of the BBC's White Season and portrays a white family who move from an area of Leeds that has predominantly White British inhabitants to an area of Bradford composed of inhabitants of South Asian heritage.
The film is told from the perspective of 11-year-old Leah, (Holly Kenny), whose life is altered when her mother, Debbie (Anna Maxwell Martin) moves the family from a white suburb of Leeds to an Asian area of neighbouring Bradford after her recent abusive relationship break-up. At first, Catholic Leah is reluctant to partake in the activities of the Muslim majority and walks out of an Islamic assembly at school, however over time she becomes more open to Islam, begins wearing a hijab and attending a Mosque, much to her mother's displeasure.
