Red Without Blue

Sensitive and thoughtful, this documentary chronicles the painful struggle of identical twins Mark and Clair Farley as they come to terms with their sexual identities and messy family life in Missoula, Montana. Their close emotional bond is broken in their early teens when Clair, born a biological male, decides she wants to be recognized as female, and the situation is further complicated by their peers' disapproval and their parents' marital discord. Directors Brooke Sebold, Benita Sills, and Todd Sills leave some critical questions unanswered, most obviously how the mother's bitter anger over the situation evolves into warm acceptance. But this engaging story nicely highlights the enormous impact parents can have on the lives of gay and transgendered teens. 77 min.
