20171 h 35 min
Overview

As anti-LGBT barriers and biases continue to crumble, the documentary Game Face couldn’t be more attuned to the cultural moment. Belgian director Michiel Thomas’ first feature-length work is an affecting reminder that, shifting mainstream perceptions notwithstanding, coming out as gay or transgender requires courage, especially in the realm of sports. His intimate profile of two American athletes — one professional, one aspiring; one a transgender woman, the other a gay man — illuminates their day-to-day struggles, both emotional and career-based.

Game Face

As anti-LGBT barriers and biases continue to crumble, the documentary Game Face couldn’t be more attuned to the cultural moment. Belgian director Michiel Thomas’ first feature-length work is an affecting reminder that, shifting mainstream perceptions notwithstanding, coming out as gay or transgender requires courage, especially in the realm of sports.

Transgender mixed-martial-arts fighter Fallon Fox and basketball hopeful Terrence Clemens represent very different experiences, not just within the spectrum of sexual orientation and gender but in terms of age, accomplishments and public exposure. The film captures Fox in the painful media glare of being outed just as her MMA star is rising and follows the closeted Clemens to college, where he wrestles privately with the growing need to be honest about who he is.(The Hollywood Reporter)
