Storyline

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

A beautiful look at Trans identity and family dynamics
10 May 2007 | by Eclipse292See all my reviews

Red without Blue is a beautiful and touching film that raises a multitude of interesting questions about identity and family life. It depicts the life of a trans teen and does not edit out the grim truths about how difficult it can to fit in with your own self-perception. The people profiled are all very compelling and honest. Interviews with the subjects get at the heart of the conflicts. Following the family over time, we get a intimate view of how people deal with crises, and how our prejudices and opinions can change so drastically when facing difficult choices.

The cinematography is beautiful and adds elegance to subject matter. The soundtrack is terrific- and features some trans musicians.

Highly recommended.
