If you can tune out even a little of the background noise, you’ll find an immersive, empathetic film that speaks the language of tolerance without getting preachy.

What’s interesting in the story—Lara’s experiences as a trans ballerina—is treated as background noise, or at least secondary to the obsession with what her body looks like. There’s something voyeuristic about a camera zooming in repeatedly on a teenager’s groin.

It employs cheap moments of trauma and body horror that evince its director and co-writer’s narrow vision of his lead character and, alongside that, extremely narrow view of transness. This film _should_ fade into obscurity due to its hollow message and the abhorrent irresponsibility of its filmmaking, but it is also, unfortunately, now readily available on Netflix.
