Movie Info

In the summer of 2015, former US Marine and world record weightlifter Matt "Kroc" Kroczaleski was publicly outed as being transgender. The reaction was universal: her sponsors abandoned her, she was disowned by her parents, banned from competing, and she changed her name to "Janae". This film follows Janae as she attempts to find her place in society.

  • Del Monte offers a warm portrait of a thoroughly winning subject.

    November 6, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Michael Del Monte's mirthful documentary carries an edifying weight that few films can muscle.

    February 18, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Overall, though, Del Monte has crafted a warm portrait of the birth of a woman from a man who found that he had even more strength than he ever realized.

    October 22, 2018 | Full Review…
  • an important LGBTQ documentary

    October 19, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Transformer has the kind of hook that practically invites an exploitative approach -- "Alpha-male, girly-girl" to quote Kroc. But Del Monte's straightforward observational doc takes its cue from Janae's level-headed honesty.

    October 18, 2018 | Rating: B-plus | Full Review…
  • We only get a few glimpses of what the more mundane aspects of Janae's life are like outside the safe spaces of her home and the gym. Fortunately, she is as chatty and eminently likeable as she is ripped, and has no problem carrying the film.
