Transamerica is an unusual 2005 father-son drama with Felicity Huffman ("Desperate Housewives") as a pre-operative transsexual. Bree (Felicity Huffman) has been living in Los Angeles as a woman, working two jobs to afford sexual reassignment. One week shy of her final surgery, her past as Stanley comes back to potentially keep her dream from coming true. Seventeen years ago, she fathered a son, Toby (Kevin Zegers), who now needs his father's help. Toby, a runaway, has landed in a jail and needs bail. At first, Bree intends on ignoring the request. Then, her therapist, Margaret (Elizabeth Pena), insists on Bree facing her past, even withholding her signature on the surgery approval. Bree goes to New York and pays Toby's bail, posing as a concerned church woman helping someone in need. The two begin a cross-country journey by car, as well as a road to self-discovery. Writer-director Duncan Tucker won an Independent Spirit Award for his original screenplay.
