We went to see Transamerica (Very Good) today. I don't understand how Felicity Huffman could have lost to Rease Witherspoon in the Oscars. I think Ms. Huffman did a better job of acting in this movie. Ms. Witherspoon was good, but....
The story is about a man (Stanley) who is just about to have the operation that puts the finishing touches on his change to a woman (Sabrina, aka Bree). She discovers she has a son (Toby the street hustler), and her psychologist says she must deal with the unresolved issues surrounding this relationship, before the operation just a week away.
Part of the movie is a road trip, and part of it is a dysfunctional family drama, and part of it is a humorous and heart warming story.
Graham Greene, one of my favorite character actors, has a nice part.
