As doc­u­men­tary filmmaker Kimberly Reed ex­plores the pains and se­crets that haunt her past in Mon­tana, she re­al­izes that there is still much to re­solve. Born male and now gen­der-tran­si­tioned to a woman, Reed — who nar­rates — also copes with the out­bursts of her adopted adult brother, Marc, who has se­vere be­hav­ioral prob­lems. When Marc dis­cov­ers he comes from Hollywood roy­alty, Reed sees a chance for her brother to break free from his trou­bled past and start a new life. This jolt­ing por­trait of hu­man iden­tity and sib­ling ri­valry brims with depth, hon­esty, and the un­pre­dictabil­ity of emo­tional and phys­i­cal vi­o­lence. Not rated. 86 min­utes. CCA Cine­math­eque, Santa Fe (Rob DeWalt) See re­view, Page 48.
