SYNOPSIS

When Lauren first saw Lewis smashing out the drums on stage, with smudged eyeliner, knotted hair and ripped jeans, she fell in love. Lewis had been open about identifying as transgender, but was still physically presenting as male and fairly certain he’d stay that way.

 Six months into their relationship, Lewis tells Lauren that he wants to medically transition genders, change pronouns from He to She, and become Elle. Over six years, we watch a couple desperate to stay together, as they navigate the effects of new body parts, changing gender roles as well as battling their own evolving sexual identities.

Girl Like You uses the dramatic reality of changing genders while in a relationship to explore the larger thematic questions of the fluidity of gender and sexual identity, and the self sacrifice required to nurture a lover through life.


A filmmaker Q&A follows the screening.


Why not plan a South West adventure at the same time as CinefestOZ? We recommend making accommodation, restaurant and tour bookings early to avoid disappointment. Plan your stay and 'wander out yonder' with Western Australia in Australia’s South West and Your Margaret River.
