"I saw this a few years ago, and I remember it being a really good movie! it only gets four stars purely because Eddie Redmayne is not a trans woman, and I personally think that trans people ought to play trans characters - those characters have been in film for a while, but it's been cis people playing them (ex. Jared Leto in "Dallas Buyers Club"). obvi, acting isn't reality though, and no one should be gatekept from characters or genres, but it would be nice to see more trans rep, especially in films with trans characters."
"Excruciatingly painful for the soul, beautiful and inspiring, but just you will feel just like Lily; a wholesomeness and closure you've always needed. Regardless of gender and identity. A forewarning though, you will want to cry but it gets stuck. It's the awful kind of heartache where you don't cry enough or let it out, no matter how bad it hurts. The perspective you gain, and from Eddie Redmayne's stunning performance, makes this a film you can't ever miss. It's on Netflix, it demands to be seen and loved and treasured forever. I can't recover from it, I'm madly in love. "
