  • Educational Media Reviews Online
    The pace of the film is contemplative, with lots of long shots of prairie fields and swirling birds illustrating the tedium of life on the road. Likewise, the stories that Spoon tells are deliberate and unhurried. They fit together to tell one person’s experience with the ways in which gender identity is discovered, constructed, and deconstructed. The best parts of the film, though, are the musical performances. The creativity in the music’s presentation, and Spoon’s obvious musical talent, make this film Recommended.
