Groundbreaking. But Limited.
2 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is groundbreaking for its subject matter. It marks the first time transsexual issues are discussed without jeer or finger pointing in mainstream (as mainstream as sundance is) media. However, it presents a limited definition of transsexual - someone who plans to or is altering their primary or secondary sex characteristics. While I might prefer the film include individuals who identify as transsexual but are not transitioning, this diversity would likely confuse people more unfamiliar with the trans world. So, A+ to the filmmakers for their justified and well-presented risk-taking, and to the participants in the film for their bravery and their willingness to be educators on an international level. Peace.
