The fascinating film XXY is out on DVD Monday from Peccadillo Pictures, and can be purchased from Amazon. This re-release of the 2007 movie is well worth a watch, and we might be able to help, as we’ve got two copies to give away.
Alex (Ines Efron) is a 15-year old with a secret that has driven her family to the windswept outer reaches of the Uruguayan shoreline. Her father, Kraken (Ricardo Darin, The Secret In Their Eyes) wants what is best for his daughter, yet he knows she cannot continue living the life she leads. Alex is intersexual and all she wants is to be left alone, to be herself.
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), she 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.
