XXY

Puenzo’s multi-award-winning feature debut is a thought-provoking story of identity centred upon incredibly powerful performances by its young leads. Alex and her parents live in isolation on the Uruguayan coast. For 15-year-old Alex, the usual confusion of puberty is compounded by her secret – Alex is a hermaphrodite. When a family from Buenos Aires comes to visit, the parents argue over Alex’s sexuality whilst she and their teenage son Alvaro explore their own options.
