Descripción del producto
Bree è una colta ed elegante transessuale che vive a Los Angeles risparmiando il più possibile per potersi pagare l'intervento chirurgico per il cambio di sesso. Un giorno riceve la telefonata da parte di Toby, un teenager alla ricerca del padre, che la informa di aver avuto un figlio da una sua passata relazione eterosessuale, quando era ancora uomo. Bree è riluttante nel conoscerlo ma la psicoterapeuta le consiglia di farlo, anche perché se non lo farà non le concederà l'autorizzazione legale per l'intervento finché non avrà affrontato e risolto tutti i conti in sospeso con il suo passato.

Sabrina "Bree" Osbourne (formerly Stanley Schupak) is one signature away from her final surgery, and then she will be a complete woman, physically. She has completed her real life training and is ready for the full monty when she gets an unexpected call from someone claiming to be Stanley's son in need of bail money. It turns out that Bree's ex lover is dead, leaving behind their son, Toby. When Bree mentions the incident to her psychiatrist, she withholds the signature until Bree assesses this sudden turn in her life. When she does, she finds that her son is a drug addicted prostitute, and under the guise of a churchgoer on a cross country trip, plans to drop him off with his stepfather so she can move on and get her vaginoplasty. Things become much more complicated than she planned, though, and what she thinks is going to be an easy ride is full of twists and turns.
A lot of LGBTQ reviewers seem to find this a sub-par addition to the media in our community due to portrayal, but I personally don't see anything wrong here. Out of all the characters, only Toby and his Johns are portrayed as something other than heterosexual (bisexual and homosexual, respectively). Aside from Bree, the only other transgender characters are a bunch of happy go lucky homebodies at a Mary Kay style party, who personally seem pretty normal and not over dramatized to me.
Still, I feel like there are almost parts missing, and the ending, while sort of happy, always kind of leaves me wanting more. The acting though, definitely makes up for it. While most of the cast is accepting of Bree's gender secret, there is still the harsh reality of the hurt people sometimes feel when you keep the secret from them (Toby) and that sometimes even people you thought loved you will never truly accept you and sometimes even distance themselves from you (Bree's parents.) All in all, it's a fun, offbeat cross country road film about what family really means, and embracing your true self, past mistakes and all.
If you are transphobic but have some sense of open mindedness you might give this a try, it may help you understand those you do not know. If you are of the Abomination crowd, why bother, your mind is already made up, the last thing Our Savior would want you to do is have any compassion or understanding for such people. Christ without compassion is that your version of Christianity?
If you have the concept of it is not authentic enough, write your own movie. Make it and we'll all hope for critical acclaim. Sometimes if you are too close to something you get a myopic view and don't see the big picture. If you concentrate on finding fault guess what you'll find. And you won't be able enjoy it because you won't see the good side.
This was well done and clearly a subject that many cannot abide. OK start castigating me. Ready Set GO!
The whole connection between them I thought was uncompleted as it don't say if they ever formed any relationship which was disappointing to say the least. I would of liked to of seen more. Another Women does a much better job of the long lost Parent returning to surprised kids.
I don't want to spoil the movie for those who plan on watching it. It is not a bad movie just far from great. I would suggest watching it on Netflex or renting it before you buy.
