world premiere 2008
U.S. release forthcoming


Because unlike so many autobiographical documentaries, this one never crosses that palpable line into self-exploitation, and unlike so many filmic rejoinders to "traditional" sex, gender, and sexuality, this one refuses to cloister those issues apart from broader tapestries of personal identity and family life. If there's any justice, this will be a major hit in the coming year.
