Alex is not like other girls. She is a 15-year-old with a secret, one that no other can claim. Her parents keep her hidden away at a coastal town in amongst the dunes of the shoreline, buying time before they must decide on a life-threatening operation.

When old family friend and plastic surgeon Ramiro arrives with his teenage son Įlvaro, Alex begins to realise that his visit could change her life forever. As the parents wrestle with the complications that will arise as Alex reaches adulthood, Alex and Alvaro become close, their relationship causing tensions amongst the locals. However, as the parents battle it out to instill a sense of open-mindedness amongst their society, it is the children who prove themselves to be flexible in understanding the sexual leanings and complexities of others.

Gender identity is at the core of this sensitive Argentinean drama that plays out along the Uruguayan coastline. An intersex child, Alex (Ines Efron) was born with physical characteristics that don't fit the definition of male or female. Now 15 years old, Alex begins to explore her sexuality, resulting in tension among her family.

Movie Reviews

New York Post - 7.5/10 by V.A. Musetto Ines Efron and Martin Piroyanski give strong performances as Alex and Alvaro, respectively. Debuting director Lucia Puenzo, who co-scripted, tackles a dicey subject with sensitivity and taste.
Washington Post - 7.0/10 by Michael O'Sullivan XXY is, in the best possible sense of the word, an awkward film.
Variety - 7.0/10 by Jonathan Holland Picture has more in common with standard child-parent conflict dramas than it would probably care to admit, but its sensitive treatment of an equally sensitive theme elevates it into something memorable.
Boston Globe - 6.3/10 by Wesley Morris The grown-ups in Lucia Puenzo's XXY are a glum lot.
The New York Times - 7.0/10 by Stephen Holden If XXY is imagistically too programmatic (a scene of carrots being sliced is typical of its Freudian heavy-handedness) and devoid of humor, it never seems pruriently exploitative. It sustains an unsettling mood of ambiguity that lingers long after the final credits.
Chicago Tribune - 7.5/10 by Michael Phillips The acting is uniformly strong, the visual approach self-effacingly honest.
TV Guide - 7.5/10 by Ken Fox Efron's remarkable performance as a wild child who seems to truly exist somewhere betwixt and between is riveting.
Chicago Sun-Times - 8.8/10 by Roger Ebert The shots are beautifully composed, the editing paces the process of self-discovery, the dialogue is spare and heartfelt, the performances are deeply human -- especially by Efron.
