finally, dang

So I finally watched Transamerica. I don't really know what to say about it other than, wow, what a good movie. It caused me to experience some empathy for a group of people that have a much harder time of it than most of us do.

The humor used to lighten the heaviness of the subject matter reaffirmed that in order to make it through life, you have to be able to laugh.

Especially at yourself.

And, seriously, what's not funny about a transsexual who discovers she fathered a son 17 years ago, and now has to figure out what to do with him?
