‘Three Generations’ will explore questions of identity and family ties. The Malificient actress, Elle Fanning is set to star in the movie, playing a New York City teen – Ray – who has decided to transition from female to male.

Naomi Watts will play Ray’s single mother, Maggie, who must come to terms with raising her only daughter as a son.

Long-time LGBT ally, Susan Sarandon will play Maggie’s mother Dolly – a music manager who lives with her lesbian partner and has a hard time understanding her grandchild’s decision.


The indie film was written by Nikole Beckwith and will be directed by Gaby Dellal.

Transgender activists have criticized previous trans-themed films and television for casting cisgender actors in transgender roles, such as Jeffery Tambor in Transparent and Jared Leto in Dallas Buyers Club.

Three Generations is slightly different in that it will focus on someone in the early stages of transition. Filming will begin in New York this month.
