CGiii Comment

Really, not the film we were expecting...thus, we're not going to say too much...

One of the many trans stories...nothing different, nothing new...we've seen and heard it all before.

The unicorns have become a herd. And, herds become boring.

The(ir) Blurb...

Erik was born female, but from an early age he felt trapped in the wrong body. When he was 18, he began his transition with hormone treatments and surgery. After meeting Martyna, the love of his life, thoughts of what makes a person a real man weigh on his mind. He struggles with body dysphoria – would he ever be able to accept himself? Suppressed memories resurface. Troubling incidents from the past: bullying at school, years of sexual abuse. Anxiety and depression have left him too ill to work, but a new door opens as well – a journey beyond his wildest dreams.

Prince of Dreams was filmed over the course of 10 years, beginning when Erik was 17. Though it deals with serious issues, the film is also alive with humor and with love.
