Shot largely in a home movie style (no glossy production here), most of the film spends time with Chaz and his girlfriend. The two have shared some hardships, but both speak with clarity and honesty when it comes to the upcoming procedures. The movie gets up close with hormone treatments and even documents the time period in which Chaz's chest is altered to be more masculine. The movie is at its strongest when dealing with the specific transitional adjustments--both physically and emotionally for the duo. We also get some reactions and interviews with family and friends. Cher does participate in a limited fashion.Read more ›
Bono. It deals well with the complexities of life for both the
transgendered, and for the children of very famous people.
Quite touching and informative, it makes the still uneasy and confusing
(for many) subject of sex re-assignment far more human, and
understandable on both a technical (how does it work?) and - more
important - emotional level.
It also doesn't shy away from the hard parts (e.g. the difficult
personality changes brought on in Chaz by his intense hormone therapy).
Chaz is allowed to look self-centered, and even like a jerk at times,
without it impeding on our sympathy or identification. He's just a
person, like all of us, which is the whole point.
While the film-making itself can be uneven, this is the kind of film
that helps people open their hearts and minds to those who seem
'different'. And that is always a worthwhile thing.
All in all, a very brave exposure of his life.
Worth a watch.
