15-year old Alex (Efron) possesses both male and female sexual organs. Raised as a girl, her liberal parents (Darin and Bertuccelli) eventually face the question of what is to be done with a girl/boy like Alex. Puenzo's directorial debut is a slow, challenging but ultimately satisfying chamber piece that examines compromise and conformity against the domestic idyll. Recommended.
