Five Stars! Gun Hill Road

Finally! ... At long last, I got a chance to see this on the second night of the Vancouver Queer Film Festival. And, yes, it was awesome! Gun Hill Road hit home in so many ways, but in particular, as I prepare to come out to my own family, with the dynamics between the father and his pre-transition daughter. One scene in particular, and I don't want to give anything away here, had me in tears. This film definitely deserves any and all awards it gets as do the stellar cast. And as it was transgender actress Harmony Santana's breakout role (as a character with my namesake), I'm looking forward to more in the future from her.
