A Sensitive Treatment of a Sensitive Subject
27 October 2001 | by deecee322See all my reviews

Lee Grant once again proves her worth as actress, producer and director in a career that stretches back 40 years in this very sensitive look at an issue many people refuse to even acknowledge, transgenderism.

Through interviews with transgendered people... and yes, these are people, not 'things' or 'its'... and following one woman through her life's experiences leading up to sexual reassignment surgery, Grant treats this subject with care, concern and sensitivity lacking in many other productions.

For those people who are transgendered, this is an excellent movie about you, as real people. For those who are curious, it is a learning tool. For those who care about other human beings, it is a must-see, not unlike certain recommended readings from high school and college.
