A beautiful documentary about gender identity and the long road to parenthood. Created from home videos shot over a 15-year period, this film follows the journey of transgender filmmaker Jason Barker and his partner, Tracey, as they attempt to have a child. The practicalities and ethical issues of their medical journey are documented in illuminating detail, but what shines through most powerfully is the strength and love of the couple’s relationship.
(2018 UK 90 mins)
The practicalities and ethical issues of their medical journey are fascinating and documented in illuminating detail … Still, the film plays out as a love story rather than an issue film, with the couple’s relationship soon becoming its most compelling element. It’s easy to root for them as would-be parents too; Tracey in particular, filmed through her lover’s eyes, is radiant, funny, direct and wise, her graceful pragmatism a welcome foil to Jason’s neuroses.
