This film does have a lot of depth to the characters, but you don't see it on screen.
If you are one of those people who watches a film for the bits you see on screen and have little time to explore what is happening away from what we are directly looking at then maybe you might not enjoy this.
There is a lack of glitzy feel-good factor about the film, but in my opinion it is what makes it so beautiful. The roughness of it all is where you can concentrate on what is happening inside the characters and not with what they are wearing, or what they look like etc.,
The struggle going on in all the main characters lives and the way they deal with society and interact with it is also very well done. The country scenery, although bleak, takes on a beauty and serenity compared to the almost chaos of the city scenes.
A lovely scene from antony and the johnsons lead singer(antony) adds to the whole group atmosphere.
This film is more like a fly on the wall of life amongst a section of trans-gendered people and their close ones more than a film with a plot. Definitely worth watching if you have an interest in these issues.
