Movie Info

Robert Eads is a female-to-male transsexual suffering from ovarian cancer who faces sure death after 20 doctors have refused to treat him for his condition. Far away from Atlanta's city lights, Robert makes a life for himself and his family-his two families: his biological family of two parents, two sons by birth, and a darling three-year-old grandson; and his chosen family of two female-to-male transsexual sons, Maxwell and Cass. Robert is falling in love with Lola Cola, a sultry male-to-female transsexual, but as hard as he tries to resist, in the face of his impending death, the romance blooms beautifully in bittersweet irony.more

Southern Comfort works so beautifully because Davis doesn't try to turn Eads and his friends into walking soapboxes for transgendered people.

Audience Reviews for Southern Comfort

Kate Davis' documentary shines a light on a corner of the world that turns out to be no different than that of the mainstream.


Had to watch this for a comm class. It was sad in parts, but very offensive to me. I wouldn't have watched this in any other situation. I don't know quite what to say.
