I can see why this film has been an award-winner at festivals over the past 1-2 years; it really is engaging and well-crafted storytelling. By following three trans high school athletes, it avoids preachiness in favor of letting the protagonists' lives and lived values predominate. As a humanist who believes part of my mandate is to encourage equality and advocate for society's disadvantaged, I applaud the film's approach to these themes. Folks of a more conservative bent and those identifying a Christian may appreciate the parental figures who see their compassion towards the trans kids in their lives as an outcropping of their faith and politics. I'll be writing a full review this weekend, but I know Hulu is offering screeners to critics and wanted to encourage folks to check it out.
