This Opening Gala for ALFF 2015 is an Eye on Canada event.
“Maureen Bradley’s debut feature is a bittersweet romantic comedy with a transgender hero in an unimaginable predicament. Forty-year-old Adam (This Hour Has 22 Minutes’ Gavin Crawford) lives alone in his tiny apartment and feels lost each night in his empty bed. An awkward encounter with a client at work makes Adam realize that he has to quit his crappy job and get his life together. Of course, all of that’s interrupted when he gets a phone call from his hysterical ex-girlfriend, Miriam (Mr. D’s Naomi Snieckus). Miriam is trying to get pregnant with a donor’s sperm and a syringe, but she needs help. Adam tries to convince her she’s unfit to be a mother and, against his better judgment, they wind up hanging out again. She wants his moral support as she tries to get pregnant. She gets a lot more. The day she inseminates herself, they wind up in bed together.
Now for the twist: Adam is transgendered. Four years ago, he started his transition from female to male but it isn’t quite complete. In fact, he gets a little bit pregnant himself. He’s torn between his feelings for Miriam, his need for a masculine identity and his eccentric pot-smoking mother’s (Robson Arm’s Gabrielle Rose) desire for grandchildren in this funny and thought-provoking farce.” - Terry McEvoy, VIFF
