A Daring Synthesis

"You Will Never Ever Be a Woman. You Must Live the Rest of Your Days Entirely as a Man, and You Will Only Grow More Masculine with Each Passing Year. There Is No Way Out." is a movie that understands, profoundly and with love and sadness, the world of trans identity; it captures ways of talking and living I remember from my time as a young trans woman, with the complexity and precision of great fiction. It observes small details that are important because they are details. It has sympathy for every character in the story and avoids two temptations: It doesn't portray the trans characters as sexual deviants, and it doesn't portray the cishets as shallow gender conformists. Van Barnes and Druckery, who directed this movie, understand how people everywhere have good intentions, and how life can assign them roles where they can't realize them.
