-Toronto Star


Gently winning. Speaks volumes about love's adaptability.

New York Times Critics' Pick


San Francisco Chronicle

Personal, insightful and gently humorous.

Toronto Star

Eloquently explores her father's very intimate transition.


No, love isn't sweeping; it's putting brush to canvas and hand to hand. It's accepting imperfections. But it's also being willing to recognize the people we love for who they are, to note our own flaws and work to change them.

Village Voice

Forthright. Well-photographed.

Hollywood Reporter

Warm and winning. Perceptively lensed.

Film Journal International

Sympathetic. Highly personal.

The Globe And Mail

Thoughtful and moving.

Washington Blade

Intimate and deeply affecting. It's a must-see

A love story as heartwarming and inspiring as it is unconventional.

An exploration of the meaning of marriage, change, love, and being transgender as [the director] shines a light on her own parents.

A loving portrait of her father. Refreshing.


When it comes to identity and love and acceptance, this thought-provoking film leaves us with much to chew on.

A great documentary.

Has my highest recommendation.

A beautiful testament to how [the father-daughter] bond can transcend gender through understanding, patience and love.
