Sensitive Portrayal Of Transgender Mother-Hood
28 March 2017 | by (Amsterdam, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I am surprised that this short film released in 2011 that has already won 3 awards and had 4 nominations does not have a single review on IMDb. I am writing this review in 2017.

I came across this film, thanks to a best-friend who shared the BEST YEAR 2016 video of Adam Rose with us. On researching a bit about Adam Rose, I came across this touching gem about LGBTQ.

It is a simple story of Nikki Holiday (Ryan Eggold) a trans-gender drag cabaret star, who is going through a crisis of a broken affair with her partner, and has a desire to adopt a child to fill up the void in her life. The adoption legal counselor Regina (Angela Bullock) rejects Nikki's plea of adoption because she is a single parent

A young bouncer Jesse (Bobby Campo) gives a helping hand to Nikki by dropping her home after an abusive attack on her, and Nikki requests Jesse to be her boy-friend just to represent her at the authorities to be eligible for adopting a child.

I would not share here what happens after that, have a look at it.

The movie was a good first attempt by actor Adam Rose who turned writer, producer and director for this movie. The acting by the whole cast is excellent. Ryan Eggold also won best actor award for his role. The settings, cinematography, background score, music, songs were good too. The ending score rendered by the song leaves a lingering melancholic feeling of unfulfilled desires of LOVE.

My lonely days are over/ love is like a song/... for you are mine

The concept must have been so strongly exciting Adam Rose that he had to make it in a movie.

The Queen is official selection in 23 Film Festivals

This short film is available on You-tube. Have a look...
