Transamerica came up on my film radar at the Tribeca Film Festival last April. Unable to get a ticket, I figured I'd see it in DVD before long. Wow, was I wrong! This film was rolled out super slow, and still has not hit theaters in RI. I went to Boston today to see it, and it was worth the ride. Felicity Huffman is believable as a man suffering from gender dysphoria, anticipating a gender change operation. The story has depth and heart, and is complicated by the revelation of an unknown son. Well worth seeing.
