Here’s Elle Fanning starring opposite Susan Sarandon and Naomi Watts in a new film about a trans teen, transitioning from female to male.
Though it appears from the trailer, which premiered on Vanity Fair, that Ray’s mother (Naomi Watts) is on board with her child’s transition, Ray’s absent father (Tate Donovan), who has a new family, seems resistant. Ray’s grandmother (Susan Sarandon) pops in with uneducated comments like, “Why can’t she just be a lesbian?”
Someone grab my earplugs because I can already hear the deafening Oscar buzz. Jared Leto is giving Elle a knowing wink – this sounds like a recipe for accolades!
