Quotes

Sophia Voines: Life is empty and meaningless - and that it's empty and meaningless... is meaningless; and empty.
[laughs]
Sophia Voines: So, in that space what's left is possibility. You get to create possibility. And in that possibility you get to choose who you wanna be. And be; how do you be? You be by your word. Life is created though language and through language you get to be who you say you're going to be. So, say who your going to be, and then be it!

Beautiful and Important film
1 October 2015 | by wbfbSee all my reviews

What an incredible and important film. Especially in the wake of gay marriage legislation and the imminent need for the United States and the rest of the world to recognize and accept the LBGT community. The women and men in this film open up so beautifully to reveal their daily lives and the struggle associated with being different in the eyes of standard society. Their resilience and passion is electric.

The film is beautifully shot. It's easy to forget you're watching a documentary when the characters are so honest and engaging and the cinematography is exceptional.

This film is a must see, highly recommend.
