Road drama about a preoperative transsexual man (Felicity Huffman), whose much anticipated sex-switching surgery is put on hold when he finds out he had unknowingly fathered a son (Kevin Zegers), a troubled youth arrested on drug charges, with whom he bonds -- without revealing his paternal identity -- while driving cross-country. Despite fine performances and themes of tolerance, responsible parenting, family bonds, interpersonal connection and human dignity, director Duncan Tucker's underlying thesis that gender identity is malleable is incompatible with church teachings on human sexuality. A sympathetic portrayal of transsexuality, a homosexual encounter and other gay plot elements, rear and frontal nudity, drug content, a crass scene of urination, as well as recurring rough and sexually crude language and profanity. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O -- morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
