The first film by Duncan Tucker, Transamerica stars Felicity Huffman as a pre-operative transsexual named Bree (whose given name was Stanley). One week before going under the knife, Bree learns that she fathered a boy who is now 17 and is in trouble with the law. Bree would like to ignore this information, but is forced to meet the young man, Toby (played by Kevin Zegers), by her analyst Margaret (Elizabeth Peña), who will not allow the surgery to happen unless Bree meets him and confronts this aspect of her past. Upon meeting, the son believes that Bree is simply a do-gooder. She buys a car and the two road-trip back to her home in Los Angeles, Bree all the while attempting to keep from Toby the truth of the situation. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

Felicity Huffman shines with newcomer Kevin Zegers....not exactly for the conservative types, that is for sure, but the point of the movie is how we humans need to learn to love ourselves for who we are or want to become, and then, and only then can we love others...
Not given the appropriate advertising budget like the movies aimed at younger audiences This is a classic example of how a great movie gets lost in the shuffle....EXCELLENT WRITING...like they say if it not on the page, it is not on the stage!!!!!
This movie keeps you on your seat the whole time! Acting was superb. Characters were very credible. It was a touchy subject brilliantly handled. Very moving, with just the right amount of humor. It really makes you think!
