Real Boy

Q&A Jamie Bruesehoff & Shepard Verbas with Reception

Real Boy is the intimate story of 19-year-old Bennett Wallace who is navigating early sobriety, late adolescence, and the evolution of his gender identity. At the same time, his mother is making her own transformation from resistance to acceptance of her trans son. Both find support in their communities, reminding us that families are not only given, but chosen.
