Great human story that brings a lot to the conversation about being a Trans POC
19 September 2018 | by Sinj_KaranSee all my reviews

Venus is must watch for the sensitive and interlaced portrayal of issues that have only recently been seen on celluloid. Being Trans in the South Asian community is a complex reality and Venus tackles it deftly. The story is layered beautifully where parenthood is seen through two prisms simultaneously. Great acting by all and sufficient doses of humour makes it an amazing watch.
