After the unexpected death of his father, Ulysses a shy, gender-nonconforming teen, faces a sudden onslaught of painful realities at home. His mom, exhausted from back-to-back shifts, enlists the help of her strict, religious aunt Rose to oversee him and his younger brother. Already a target of locker-room bullies at school, Ulysses now must endure Rose’s wrath after she catches him trying on his mom’s nylon stockings and high heels.
The La La Land of personal conviction with its joys, its dramas and five absolutely hypnotic, sublime, musical moments.
