Starring Ines Efron (Glue, The Fish Child) and Ricardo Darin (The Secret In Their Eyes) XXY has drawn comparisons to Celine Sciamma s Tomboy, Julia Solomonoff s The Last Summer of La Boyita and Alain Berliner s Ma Vie En Rose.
Alex (Ines Efron) is a 15-year old with a secret. To protect her sexual identity, the family has moved to the windswept outer reaches of the Uruguayan shoreline. Her father, Kraken (Ricardo Darin) wants what is best for his daughter, yet he knows she cannot continue living the life she leads.
When an old family friend, who is also a plastic surgeon, is invited to stay at their cabin along with his teenage son Alvaro (Martin Piroyansky), Alex realises the disturbing ramifications of the visit and develops a relationship with Alvaro that is far from conventional...
Highly acclaimed and the subject of much debate, XXY is the intimate coming-of-age portrayal of a teenager born between the love of her parents, her own personal desires, and the daunting, inevitable path into adulthood.
