Let me say right up front that this film can not be approved as family-friendly. It not only contains inappropriate material for children, many adults will be offended by the subject matter and the frankness in which it is portrayed.
You can’t watch this film and not feel some sympathy for its main character. We meet Bree just as he/she is about to have sexual reassignment surgery which will finally make her a woman. But her transformation is put on hold when she learns of a son she “fathered” in a one-time encounter. What follows is a father/son road trip movie like no other. Bree is overly feminine and uptight while her son Toby is a degenerate teenager with an abusive past. There are many comical moments along this journey, most notably when the two make a stop at Bree’s parents’ home. However, the comedy is overshadowed by disturbing scenes of prostitution and dysfunctional family moments. I felt the shock-value nudity used by the filmmaker was unnecessary and made the viewer want to turn away as if intruding.
The acting and production values in the film are very good and the storyline completes its arc with a satisfactory ending. But, unless you have an aching need to learn more about the transgendered community, I suggest you skip this disturbing film.
