Peccadillo’s REAL BOY, its first VOD release, is available now on all platforms including BFI Player, FilmDoo, Amazon Instant, Sky Store, Vimeo On Demand, and Google Play. Directed by Shaleece Haas, an LA-based documentary filmmaker, the film is an intimate story of a family in transition. It’s already proven to be a favourite of BFI Flare and winner of Iris Prize Best Feature Award .2016.
As 19-year-old Bennett Wallace navigates early sobriety, late adolescence, and the evolution of his gender identity, his mother makes her own transformation from resistance to acceptance of her trans son. Along the way, both mother and son find support in their communities, reminding us that families are not only given, but chosen.
