I first saw this movie a number of years ago, before the extended library website allowed for comments. I recently saw the trailer for it again, and was reminded what a well done, sensitive and provocative movie this is. I think it is a movie everyone should see, not only because of how well crafted it is, but because of its educative qualities.

The majority of people fit relatively neatly into a sex and gender, and we tend to assume that of others. This movie's characters give a peek into the difficulties for those who do not easily fit into those categories have to cope with, most often due to the lack of understanding by others.

If nothing else, this movie leaves each of us to question our own attitudes and whether we are open and supportive to the many variations within humanity.

Provocative topic and superly directed and acted.

Extremely provocative and heart-wrenching film with performances that are equally evocative! Forces us, as the audience, to consider not only the nature of intersex individuals but also the great (and, in my opinion, often arbitrary) importance we place on being able to classify and segregate people based upon "gender".
