Real Boy
---

An intimate story of a family in transition. As 19-year-old Bennett Wallace navigates sobriety, adolescence, and the evolution of his gender identity, his mother makes her own transformation from resistance to acceptance of her trans son. Along the way, both mother and son find support in their communities, reminding us that families are not only given, but chosen.

Winner of the Audience Award for Best Documentary at the Frameline Film Festival.

"Poignant, raw, and incredibly heartfelt--a testament to the great filmmaking" - The Advocate

"REAL BOY captures the years-long and often painful process [of transition] with a degree of sensitivity that has never been seen before." - The Daily Beast
