Real Boy at Brisbane Queer Film Festival 2017

March 11 @ 3:00 pm - 4:20 pm UTC+10

Bennett Wallace is a charismatic teenager on the brink of adulthood. As he navigates the ups and downs of gender transition and grapples with a history of substance abuse, Bennett embarks on a journey to find his voice—as a musician, a friend, a son, and a man.

Filmed over four years, Real Boy follows the evolution of Bennett’s relationship with his mother Suzy, who has deep misgivings about his transition.

As Suzy struggles to come to terms with his decision, Bennett is taken under the wing of his idol Joe Stevens, a celebrated transgender musician fighting his own demons. Through observational storytelling that is alternately poignant and humorous, Real Boy explores the complexity of addiction, the healing power of music, and the importance of family, both given and chosen.
