REAL BOY shows in Redding CA to small but supportive viewers
22 May 2017 | by franktreadwaySee all my reviews

Just saw REAL BOY in Redding CA, now I know why it won 7 film fest awards; just a camera following a young female going through the changes of life to the real call of his body and mind. The editing, music, film research by Ms. Haas was perfect. I bet Ben and his mother were happy over the moon for this piece of film that will be ready for the archives of what transitioning is all about. Kudos to filmmaker and the real stars.
