(Sharon Shat­tuck, U. S.). 74 min­utes. Rat­ing: NNNN In this ten­der story of a fam­ily deal­ing with a fa­ther’s male-to-fe­male tran­si­tion, direc­tor Sharon Shat­tuck looks back on her own ex­pe­ri­ences. Her dad be­came Tr­isha when she and her sis­ter were young girls.

In in­ter­views with par­ents and towns­peo­ple and the di­ary Tr­isha kept via her vi­brant paint­ings dur­ing her tran­si­tion, we learn how her wife, Mar­cia, coped with the shift and forged a new mean­ing for com­pro­mise.

Ul­ti­mately, this film suc­ceeds be­cause it’s ide­o­log­i­cally un­en­cum­bered, com­mit­ted only to the emo­tional truth of the story, and re­volves around the theme of love. SGC Apr 27, 9: 45 pm, Sco­tia­bank 4; Apr 29, 1: 45 pm TIFF 2; May 3, 9:15 pm, TIFF 2
