Transamerica

Oscar nominated Felicity Huffman stars as a transsexual preparing for surgery who discovers she has a son in jail. Masquerading as a missionary, she bails him out and as they travel together across America, she becomes increasingly prim and maternal towards her surly and manipulative son. Funny and touching but never sentimental
