Lucía Puenzo Argentina, 2007

Katya Kazbek's rating of the film XXY

Searing, beautiful film, and I was especially thankful for the emphasis on Alex not having/wanting/being able to choose which of the binaries to belong to. Also loved the unexpected power play and attitudes between characters according to their gender. However, I do wish that a real transman played the older guy that Alex's Dad goes to seek advice from, not a cis male actor.
