  • Critic Reviews
    "[M]oody, surreal....It is a somber, brooding study of Alex and her parents as they face the painful crossroads when adulthood looms."
    New York Times

    4 stars out of 5 -- "Puenzo's direction is subtle and sensitive, but it's these pitch-perfect teenagers who really get XXY firing on all chromosomes."
    Total Film

    "XXY argues for the possibility not just of survival, but of a loving acceptance....Courageous..."
    Sight and Sound

    4 stars out of 5 -- "Puenzo's study of sexual identity, parental authority and social alienation is the most original coming-of-age drama you'll see this year."
