This review is from: Transamerica  [DVD] (DVD)
I can fully understand why Felicity Huffman was nominated for an oscar but I don't understand why she didn't win! A fabulous performance by the Desperate Housewife as a 'man' waiting to complete his gender transforming surgery when he finds out he has a son.
A phone call from a NY prison to inform Bree his son is in prison throws her life completely upside down. Her therapist refuses to sign her off for surgery until she faces everything from her past and is ready to move on. The surgery is scheduled for the following week and to go back on the list is out of the question for her. This prompts Bree to head down to NY if only to show she tried. Things don't turn out as planned when she offers to drive cross country back to LA with Toby so he can try his hand at acting.
What ensues is a wonderful journey not only through America but the life of Bree and Toby as they start to bond and really see each other. Very funny and touching movie.
