4. TV: Style Exposed: “Transgender Kids”
Premiering August 27, the latest installment of Style Network’s riveting documentary series — which previously included an episode titled “Born Male, Living Female” — takes an in-depth look at the lives of three inspirational transgender children and the many challenges that they and their families face. The young subjects include Chris (pictured), a boy who was born female but soon ditched frilly dresses for baseball caps.
3. FILM: Circumstance
A Sundance 2011 Audience Award winner, bisexual Iranian-American filmmaker Maryam Keshavarz’s sensuous debut feature opens August 26 in limited release. It’s a suspenseful coming-of-age love story between two Iranian girls, Atafeh and her schoolmate Shireen, who risk arrest by the morality police as they develop a taboo relationship while exploring Tehran’s underground party scene with youthful rebellion.
2. FILM: Our Idiot Brother
Jesse Peretz’s terrific ensemble comedy, which is in theaters August 26, stars Paul Rudd as a lovable pot-smoking man-child — and the bane of the existence of his three uptight sisters, played by Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel, and Emily Mortimer. Deschanel is as adorable as ever as Natalie, a bisexual hipster who’s unfaithful to her loyal girlfriend Cindy, a boyish lesbian lawyer nailed by Parks and Recreation star Rashida Jones.
