Lucía Puenzo Argentina, 2007

klofter's rating of the film XXY

It's too bad the film ultimately succumbs to predictable melodramatic trappings. The early tentative friendship between Alex and Alvaro was so compelling that I really didn't care about the adults' struggle to come to terms with Alex' situation. Along the way Alex' point of view was lost and the film suffered greatly from it. Still, there are some truly affecting and heartbreaking moments here.
