Drama
Writer-director Lucía Puenzo’s sobering Argentine-produced drama takes an emotional look at the case of fifteen-year-old Alex (wonderfully portrayed by actor Inés Efron), a victim of “genital ambiguity” who is changing from female to male. The situation comes to a head when the teenage son of visiting family friends gets pulled into some innocent but startling sexual experimentation with young Alex at her/his home on the Uruguayan coast. A well-written, ably acted treatment of a potentially sensational story, with good character support by Ricardo Darín as Alex’s father (86 min.).
