Via Vanity Fair:
With transgender people more visible than ever in the media and in everyday life, more trans people have been able, at younger ages, to begin their own transitions. In the new drama About Ray we see the way a family is rocked, as daughter Ramona (Elle Fanning) begins the process of becoming Ray. Despite the title, the film is not just about Ray—Ray’s mother (Naomi Watts), father (Tate Donovan), and grandmother (Susan Sarandon) are all deeply impacted by his identity. Ray may have finally found a way to become who he truly is, but finding that understanding in his own family may be a much greater challenge.
