Elle Fanning, Susan Sarandon and Naomi Watts star in this family drama about a mother who comes to terms with her transgender teenage daughter's decision to transition from female to male while hunting down the teen's biological father in order to get legal consent. It's sensitive, well meaning and solidly acted--but the skittish script goes to so much effort to make the central idea seem like "no big deal" that it robs the narrative of some serious drama. The potentially compelling transgender storyline keeps getting pushed aside for your standard-issue, indie-style dysfunctional family dramedy. 92 minutes Unrated.
