Nothing new here
This documentary is really nothing new or special. It just follows a family that has a boy who feels like he is a girl, which happens. The main struggle in this film is that the school is not allowing Coy to keep on using the girls restroom which in my opinion is not enough to make an interesting documentary.
It actually feels more like a reality show that you would see on TLC or some channel like that. It follows the family around without actually sending a message or going into anything substantial. We all know by now it is difficult for transgender kids, this film does not give you anything new nor does it help in letting people understand and accept transgender kids.
Uncomfortable to watch, one sided documentary
This documentary was not quite what I expect a good documentary to be like.
Mild spoilers ahead, so be warned, if you keep reading.
First, it lacks in giving you new information. There are a few facts mentioned, most of them are already known.
Second, and far more disappointing: I couldn’t stand the mother at all. I kept wondering, if she did all the additional interviews vastly for money, especially when Coy didn’t seem to enjoy the being interviewed situation anymore (or at all). Furthermore, I disliked the way the couple handled this whole going public thing. At the end of the film, I was left with the impression, that the father didn’t quite had anything to say as he was rarely at home, busy with his studying. So it seems like it was mainly her decision to put Coy out there, while clearly not thinking through what it might change or be like for Coy while she’s growing up and becoming an adult. This whole documentary was awfully one-sided.
To be honest, I totally agree with letting your kids be the way, they feel comfortable and not try to push them into gender stereotypes. But I kinda had an issue, that they put a six year old so much into the spotlight of the media. Fight for your/their rights and equality, enlighten people, but do it from your position without pushing people who cannot fully consent out into the open.
