A woman playing a man wanting to be a woman.,
This review is from: Transamerica  [DVD] (DVD)
A road movie featuring a man in the middle of his gender change and a drug addict son who has no idea his travelling companion is his father. Sounds like a barrel of laughs ... NOT. However that is exactly what it is. It is also poignant, moving, heart-warming and life affirming. The acting of the whole cast is exemplary but the performance of DESPERATE HOUSEWIFE Felicity Huffman is nothing short of astonishing. No wonder she picked up all sorts of awards and just failed to pick up the best actress gong at the Oscars. You might think it is not your cup of tea. Believe me,if you like watching movies this is your Earl Grey.
