New England Premiere
Awkward teen Adam spends his last high school summer with his big sister, who throws herself into NYC’s lesbian and trans activist scene. After meeting and falling for thoughtful, savvy Gillian he realizes that she’s mistaken his gender identity and makes the fateful decision not to correct her, as he and those around him encounter love, friendship and hard truths.
Director Rhys Ernst (a director/producer on Transparent) depicts Ariel Schwag’s novel with wit and sensitivity, delivering a coming-of-age comedy that subverts boy-meets-girl conventions.
