An extraordinary love story, a visual feast, a journey of discovery and a testament to the courage of a transgender pioneer, all in one remarkable film based on a true story that is even more topical today than it was in the 1930s.
“Handsomely made, intelligent and sympathetic” The Guardian
“You experience firsthand the challenges transgendered people endured nearly a century ago and still experience today” Rex Reed N.Y. Observer
“What makes the performance even more powerful though is its female counterpoint” Hollywood Reporter
