  • msmichel's rating of the film Venus

    A South Asian transgender woman living in Montreal attempts to not only navigate her transition but her relationships with her mother, her closeted boyfriend and her newly discovered son (from a youthful transgression). What's novel about the film is that for all its' contrivances the filmmaker's empathy for her lead character and the authenticity of performance shine through. Well worth seeking out.
