Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average The film itself is a journey that had the potential to be far more entertaining—and enlightening.

Rolling Stone Full Review
Average Even nurturing talent can't breathe life into a script that is completely D.O.A.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Below Average But all attempts at achieving lasting emotional resonance in regard to Ray's internal experience are repeatedly thwarted by superfluous subplots that steal the spotlight from the film's supposed protagonist.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
At 16 years-old, Ray (Elle Fanning) already is already living as a boy at school and at home, where he lives with his single mother, Maggie (Naomi Watts), his grandmother Dolly (Susan Sarandon) and Dolly's longtime partner, Frances (Linda Emond). Dreading the prospect of another unhappy two years at his current school, Ray badly wants to begin hormone therapy so he can transfer to a new school and get a fresh start where people will only know him as a boy. Maggie is supportive and ready to do whatever Ray needs, as she has done his entire life. And while Dolly may be a liberal, larger-than-life bohemian, she is having a hard time accepting that she has a grandson.

Because of Ray's age, he cannot begin the physical transition process without the written consent of both biological parents. That means Maggie must track down her long-estranged ex-boyfriend, Craig (Tate Donovan), a necessary step that knocks her completely off-balance.

Adding to the turmoil, Dolly and Frances reveal that they feel it's time for Maggie and Ray to live on their own. Feeling his future slipping away, Ray decides it's time to make something happen and takes matters into his own hands.
