She's a Boy I Knew

2007 Documentary

Filmmaker Gwen Haworth turns the camera on his own family to explore just how everyone reacted when, at the age of twenty-three, he finally made the decision to leave his wife and become a woman. Steven Haworth was the product of your typical Canadian family, but deep inside he was constantly deceiving himself about his true inner-nature. Steven wanted to become a woman, but in order to do so he would have to come clean not only to himself, but to his wife and the rest of his family as well. In this documentary, archival footage and animation combine to show how one man's startling transformation affected everyone around him, and how the reactions of those he loved prompted everyone to look at their lives with more honesty than ever before.~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide
