Storyline

REAL BOY is an intimate story of a family in transition. As 19-year-old Bennett Wallace navigates early sobriety, late adolescence, and the evolution of his gender identity, his mother makes her own transformation from resistance to acceptance of her trans son. Along the way, both mother and son find support in their communities, reminding us that families are not only given, but chosen.

Beautiful, moving, even funny
8 August 2016 | by shanagpSee all my reviews

Real Boy is a beautiful film about identity, family, music, friendship, and life's journey. These are compelling people who have let us in on some intense moments of their lives and shared powerful music to communicate about it. It is particularly insightful about three transgender guys' experiences, families, and communities. It's also about being a person, being part of a family, being a friend, being a mentor, and learning from someone else. This film is beautiful to watch (the footage is filmed and edited gorgeously), with excellent music, moving moments, laughs, and a wonderful arc. You'll be glad you watched it. If you're a teacher or member of a community group, you'll be glad you shared it and will have plenty to talk about afterwards.
