Well-drawn and well-acted, this microbudget Australian pic deserves to be seen by everyone. Genuine and realistic, this is empathetic without kowtowing to overwrought trans tragedy: Adelaide Buyers Club this ain't.

Hyde and her screenwriter Matthew Cormack tackle all this with persuasive confidence, conveying subtly, and with periodic comedy,

Rough around the edges but sophisticated where it counts.
