A IS FOR ARGENTINA
A searing, beautiful film about an intersex child. I was especially thankful for the emphasis on them not having/wanting/being able to choose which of the binaries to belong to. Ricardo Darín, the main man of Argentine cinema plays the protagonist’s dad, and Inés Efron is beautiful in the leading role, however, I kept thinking that a real intersex actor would be better. Another missed opportunity was the role of a transman played by a cis-male actor. Nonetheless, a great, important movie. And those landscapes, so beautiful.
