Nothing new here
30 January 2017 | by florisklaver76See all my reviews

This documentary is really nothing new or special. It just follows a family that has a boy who feels like he is a girl, which happens. The main struggle in this film is that the school is not allowing Coy to keep on using the girls restroom which in my opinion is not enough to make an interesting documentary.

It actually feels more like a reality show that you would see on TLC or some channel like that. It follows the family around without actually sending a message or going into anything substantial. We all know by now it is difficult for transgender kids, this film does not give you anything new nor does it help in letting people understand and accept transgender kids.
