excellent movie and worth listening to the interview with Felicity Huffman and Duncan Tucker.

Well done. A compassionate insight. Gave attention to the issues that trans-gender people have to go through in our society. Including the different perspectives family members take and how it impacts on all involved lives.

I thought this movie was funny and compelling and had great acting and writing. Felicity Hoffman was amazing. One commenter said that in his/her opinion this says nothing about "trans" people. It isn't meant to be a representation of all trans people or the trans experience. It's about one person, who, trans or not, finds it hard to open up and let herself be free. She has to work through her childhood experiences and learn to accept herself - her inside self, not just her body - before she can be happy. It could have been about a person who loses a lot of weight but still has too much self-loathing to allow other people in. Or like Groundhog day, where Bill Murray learns to do the right things to manipulate the people around him, but until he actually changes, his life still doesn't work for him (I watched these two movies over the same weekend..).

the later half of the disc is difficult to see due to ? scratches?
the images freeze and often take along time to change, so slowly one can wath the pixels change, if at all.

couldn't get into this, comedy/character/storywise although oddly unique. one of those where I felt perhaps I saw all the comedic/good parts in the previews.

It was worth to see. Good acting, and the argument engaged me. Although I am sure this is one slight approach to the transgender women reality.
