As y’all know, I’m always on the lookout for trans themed movies that feature trans folks playing trans characters, and here’s another onethat should be on your radar starring Laverne Cox,
It’s entitled Carl(a) and has two trans actors in it. Joslyn DeFreece in the title role as a trans woman facing opposition from her family as she is completing her physical transition and Laverne before she blew up. The 2011 movie also stars Greg Bello and Mark Margolis and is directed by Eli Hershko.
Carla falls in love with a man named Sam who seems to love her for who she is, but he questions their relationship when Carla finally get the means to finish it. She is faced with the choice of being herself or being with the man she loves.
Carl(a) will be distributed in limited release by Ariztical Entertainment in select theaters across the country on December 10, and hope we in Houston get to see it.
