The New Girlfriend (Une Nouvelle Amie) New Transgender Film

Une Nouvelle Amie (The New Girlfriend) is a new transgender themed French film covering the subject of Crossdressing and gender confusion.
  1. Here is the synop from IMDB

    Childhood best friends Claire and Laura are utterly inseparable, so it comes as a particularly devastating blow when Laura becomes ill and dies, leaving her husband, David, to raise their newborn daughter Lucie by himself. As she stops by the house one afternoon, door unlocked, she find a strange woman holding Lucie, who, on closer inspection, turns out to be David in a blonde wig and one of Laura's dresses.

    The film has just been released on DVD in France (in French only,  no English subtitles). The BBFC in the UK has just this month issued a 15 certificate for it so I guess it will be doing the rounds of the art house cinemas. I see a trip to The Duke of York cinema in Brighton in the near future.

    The UK general cinema release date is 22nd May 2015, but there are a few advanced screenings.

    More info can be found on the film director Francois Ozon's website here

    Any way here is the trailer for now:
