Review There are a number of great performances in this film, starting with Zegers, a former child actor (and the star of Air Bud) who movingly portrays Toby's obnoxious truculence, which masks a great vulnerability. Greene, Flanagan, and Young are also all very good. But this is a movie that is going to live or die on its portrait of Bree, and Tucker could not have cast a better actress than Huffman. With her angular features and hair darkened, and her voice dropped down to a husky tone, she does pass as a transsexual. More importantly, she brings out the many shades of Bree's personality and the inner conflicts that roil her and allows us to really see this woman for who she is.

Review That "Transamerica," written and directed by Duncan Tucker, works as a film is because Bree is so persistently and patiently herself. If she had been wilder, stranger, more extroverted, the movie might fly off the rails. It is precisely because she is so conventionally sincere that the movie gathers power in deep places while maintaining a relative surface calm...What Felicity Huffman brings to Bree is the newness of a Jane Austen heroine. She has been waiting a long time to be an ingenue, and what an irony that she must begin as a mother. But she is a good person to the bottom of her socks, and at the end of "Transamerica," you realize it was not about sex at all. It was about family values.
