Great locations from Uruguay, very sensitive
Unusual but affecting Spanish language drama about a 15 year old hermaphrodite (or intersex for the politically correct crowd), that contrary to expectations doesn't hinge on death or disaster for the 'outsider' like the superficially similar "Boys Don't Cry". The only strangeness is that Alex's family are so relatively lacking in understanding to begin with, but that's probably my liberal perspective speaking. Inés Efron gives a superb, edgy and heartfelt performance in the central role and she's well supported. Very good.
