RED WITHOUT BLUE is an artistic and groundbreaking examination of gender, identity, and the unswerving bond of twinship despite transformation. An honest portrayal of a family in turmoil, RWB follows a pair of identical twins as one transitions from male to female. Captured over a period of three years, the film documents the twins and their parents, examining the Farleys' struggle to redefine their family. The twins' early lives were quintessentially all-American: picture-perfect holidays, supportive parents who cheered them on every step of the way. By the time they were 14, their parents had divorced, they had come out as gay, and a joint suicide attempt precipitated a forced separation of Mark and Alex for two and half years. Through candid and extensive interviews with the twins and their family, RED WITHOUT BLUE recounts these troubled times, interweaving the twins' difficult past with their efforts to find themselves in the present. The film follows the painful steps of Clair's... Written by Director, RED WITHOUT BLUE

Mark Farley: It was a shock to me at first. I didn't even know who transgender people were or what that term meant. I just couldn't imagine you transforming into something else.

a movie about GLBT issues in the family
2 June 2007 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

i saw this movie at the new Zealand Outtakes film festival, and i loved it. first of all the summary of the movie, ( a set of twins, one grows up to be a gay man the other a transsexual woman) is one that catches the eye and promises to be interesting. it doesn't fail on that quality. the story is actually about how these issues can have a traumatic effect on the family, anyone who has experienced a family member coming out as gay or trans will know that it causes shock waves in the family and in this movie three people (the mother lives and sleeps with another woman but refuses to refer to herself as lesbian) in the same family have these problems. the people interviewed tell a story of a childhood lost in a harsh fashion. in puberty the twins fall into a lifestyle of self loathing, drugs and abusive partners which ends in a suicide pact and their eventual separation after rehab. the story picks up with them getting to know each other again, Alex is transitioning to Clair and Oliver has come out as gay, both of them are trying to find acceptance in the family and love that can equal the relationship they have. is a very touching story about how an unconventional families strives to love and connect with one another. i recommend it to everyone (especially but not only members of the GLBT community) as a look at what it means to be a family
