Boring
27 July 2018 | by efreed09See all my reviews

A boring movie about someone who just can't decide if they want to spend their life as their true gender, or pretend to be the other.

It seems it is more about trying to enforce the notion that thought somehow changes biological gender and definitely targets the an audience that already supports that narrative. If you happen to believe that gender is physical state rather than a meta-spiritual state-of-mind, you will likely find the film frustrating to watch.

Production-wise, the film is not terrible, though a bit slow-paced for my taste. The acting, directing, casting, etc. is all on-par for what you would expect from an indie film. The film just seems fundamentally flawed in its content, which sinks it.
