Charlie is happy at home in suburban North West England, a keen and skillful young footballer attracting interest for professional clubs. But when they come out as transgender, their once close family becomes conflicted, while his teammates and the wider local community find it hard to accept, too. Rebekah Fortune’s charming and assured debut feature is a sensitive, timely and positive depiction of a teenager coming to terms with their gender identity. It features a courageous, eye-catching and strikingly natural performance from newcomer Harry Gilby in the title role, and he’s well supported by an impressive cast.
