09:55 am: Went to see XXY last night, with vjbseven and doseybat. Enjoyed. I mean, any film featuring surprise buttsex is ok by me. Um, no. I mean, it was a sensitive portrayal of an intersex kid, Alex, who is fast approaching puberty, and the varying reactions of family and others. The only major quibbles I would have is the misleading name of the film (as Klinefelter's does not do that - they would have done better to keep the original short story name, "Cinismo"), and I'm certain the ultrasound bit was nonsense. But otherwise, good film.

Isn't 15 a bit late for puberty ? Thought it was fast approaching the decision over which sex to choose.

Well, I guess it depends if you've been taking anti-androgens.

were they ?
Hmm reviews seem to be all over the place with "encroaching puberty"(?) , "extended puberty" and the like. Stuck in a gender identity crisis anyway.
Don't think the film has got to Nottingham Broadway yet as might go see it.

The phoenix is back sufferer unfriendly. their seats are killers over an extended period :(
Hmm Perhaps Broadway showed it already and I wasn't paying attention. Not always convenient to do a 50 mile round trip though.
Want to see La Antena but that seems to have got a limited release. Even outpost which is a mainstream b movie isn't on around here
