Lucía Puenzo’s accomplished debut explores the painful search for gender identity of Alex (an outstanding performance by Inés Efron), a hermaphrodite, as she enters adolescence and is pressured by her parents to “choose.” Gracefully shot, the film’s most astonishing trait is its openness and lack of judgement as it tackles this difficult, emotional topic. Moving and forceful, XXY virtually demands that people be given freedom of choice in a tolerant and understanding atmosphere. TIFF
