Cathy and Max re A Fantastic Woman

I saw this movie for the second time with my trans child. I was impressed the first time but felt everything more intensely with Max right next to me. It is difficult to watch at times but a great way to start a conversation. Ultimately hopeful, Max found it brilliant. So great to see a trans woman in the lead role.
