Malou Reymann’s semi-autobiographical first feature, winner of the Big Screen Audience Award at the Rotterdam Film Festival earlier this year, presents a nuanced and timely portrait of family life. A Perfectly Normal Family tells the story of Emma, whose home life suddenly becomes more complicated when her father Thomas announces that he has chosen to identify as a woman. Witnessing Thomas become Agnete, Emma struggles to hold on to the relationship they had, whilst acknowledging her parent’s feelings for her have not changed.

Reymann’s drama sensitively explores the issue of trans identity from the wider perspective of domestic life and in doing so questions the very essence of what we mean when we talk about family.
