是時候香港電影要去勇敢面對LGBT的T,由跨性別人士黃家恆擔綱主角趙凌風,談性取向前先問自身,抉擇做哪類人:女兒心錯落漢子身,是壓抑下去,還是率性求真身?本地新晉導演孫明希支持後者的立場清晰,根據真人真事描劃跨性別女人,勇敢地走真女人之路,而不是口不對心的易服gay。那麼,已是妻子及母親身份的宋紫洳(李蕙敏飾),對比在基督教家庭並掙扎於心魔的少年人趙凌風,這會是過來人默默展示圓滿將來的憧憬和祝福嗎?孫明希摒棄任何《蝴蝶君》式異色風情,不打算讓兩個孤獨的靈魂來個陳腔濫調的抱頭痛哭,只戲劇性地讓她們同時關心同一個人:宋紫洳痛愛的繼女李麗淇(麥詠楠飾)。李麗淇愛上同班同學趙凌風,兩個人生到底還是現在式地交叉進行,充滿未知數。時代即使保守也在學習,勇敢表白面對,未獲接納,還是勝卻做半邊人的虛假安逸。

Be a real woman, or stay in that wrong skin? It’s a question much more than just about sexual orientation. Time for Hong Kong cinema to face the “T” in LGBT, and apparently new director Maisy Goosy Suen has chosen to support the latter, by adapting the untold stories of transwomen, their bold journeys of revealing their true natures. Chiu (starring Tomo Kelly), a young distressed Christian; Soong (starring Amanda Lee), already transformed into a mother and a wife - could the latter be a hopeful blessing to the younger trans-generation? Exotic precedents like M. Butterfly was not director Suen’s approach, cliché cry-outs are the last things needed by the two lonely souls. Instead, their eyes are set upon the same person – Kay (starring Buber Mak), Soong’s loving step-daughter as well as Chiu’s classmate who takes a liking towards him. Life is full of fate-crossing uncertainties, but at least the world is progressing. Honesty takes courage, even being unaccepted entirely, still better than living a halved life.
