XXY: An intimate and moving drama about an intersex teenager named Alex who has been raised as a girl but now, at the age of fifteen, has to decide which gender they actually want to choose to live as, or whether that's even a choice they necessarily have to make. XXY offers a story about the dignity and strength of youth. Set by the seas of Uruguay, the film strays from medical-realism and instead offers poetry and clumsiness to explore the story of Alex's body, sexuality and self-awareness. Beautiful. Tough. Powerful. An Argentine film.
