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

One of a kind documentary
18 June 2007 | by preppy-3See all my reviews

I caught this at the Provincetown International Film Festival. It's about a pair of identical twins (Mark and Alex) who grow up to realize they're gay. One of them remains a man but the other wants to get a sex change--maybe. This film deals with how they grew up and how one wants to get a sex change.

The subject matter is certainly different and this movie is pretty well-done...but I do have a problem with it. All the people interviewed (including the brothers) have blank looks on their faces and speak in a monotone about everything. It lessens the impact of some truly horrifying events the men went through and always keeps the viewer at arms length. Still this is a fascinating documentary and the discussions about gender changing are very interesting. Worth catching.
