Fantastic, better then I was expected. Transamerica manage to create a light, at times hilarious film, out of more then taboo subject matter. I had my doubts as to a women playing a man who is undergoing sexual reassignment surgery, but the performance by Felicity Hoffman was superb. The film avoided every cliched lost parent-lost child meeting trap there is, through out (even with the over-the-top parents) it seemed real. It doesnít even mess up the ending, while keeping it hopeful. Transamerica was a joy to watch.
