One of the best documentaries I have seen
11 February 2014 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

One of the best films I saw at an international film festival in Iceland was the documentary She's a Boy I Knew.

There Gwen Haworth starts filming process sex reassignment surgery, from the moment she first had the idea. She has a girlfriend who is trying to accept the idea that her boyfriend is changing into a girl and wondering how she feels about it. Gwen Haworth however loves her girlfriend and wants the relationship to continue. We also get to see how her family reacts to these changes and not least how she is dealing with them. The hormonal treatments is making a mess out of her and she finds it hard to find the women she wants to be. We are witnessing a birth of an inner person and it's all filmed while it is happening.

I met Gwen Haworth at the festival. Sincere, funny stunningly beautiful and smart as a whip. This is one of the best documentaries I have seen and is a must see for anyone interested in the subject.
