Terrific, memorable film.
20 October 2008 | by See all my reviews

This is one of three films, all documentaries, I've seen so far in this year's Seattle Lesbian and Gay Film Festival. And, while all three have been worthy, even moving, films, She's a Boy I Knew is by far the best and most powerful of them. The filmmaker takes on a very daunting double task here -- essaying an intensely personal record of what her transition meant to her, while also charting the various courses her family (parents, sisters, best friend, wife) takes thru the process as well. To find a strong balance between the two -- much less a perfect one -- is an incalculably delicate matter, but Haworth absolutely nails it. Perhaps it shouldn't be too surprising that a film school graduate could so movingly share her own experience on film this way, but arguably more startling is how rich a portrait of a whole family of rather diverse personalities and reactions she brings to the screen.

A really terrific and memorable film.
