About the Movie

3 GENERATIONS tells the stirring and touching story of three generations of a family living under one roof in New York as they must deal with the life-changing transformation by one that ultimately affects them all. Ray (Elle Fanning) is a teenager who knows he’s a boy, even though he was assigned female at birth. Ray has already been living as a boy for years, but is now ready to start hormone replacement therapy. His single mother, Maggie (Naomi Watts), must track down Ray’s biological father (Tate Donovan) to get his legal consent to allow Ray’s transition. Dolly (Susan Sarandon), Ray’s lesbian grandmother is having a hard time accepting that she now has a grandson. They must each confront their own identities and learn to embrace change and their strength as a family in order to ultimately find acceptance and understanding.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Good intentions abound in "3 Generations," a movie about a New York teenager transitioning from female to male, but they lead to a certain overzealousness. – Neil Genzlinger, New York Times, May 4, 2017

Rotten: [Dellal] way overcranks the "movie" neuroses of her three characters, muffling any human spark. – Joe McGovern, Entertainment Weekly, May 4, 2017

Rotten: Another bloodless example of Hollywood's cowardice in grappling with the world as it is. 3 Generations doesn't cut deep into the torn-from-the-headlines issue of trans rights. In fact, it doesn't cut at all. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, May 5, 2017

Rotten: This is a movie that derives most of its suspense on whether a piece of paper will be signed, not a strong basis for dramatic tension. – David Lewis, San Francisco Chronicle, May 10, 2017

A story of a mother and her family

The story may seem like an uncommon one at first, but really the story is a typical one, that is, dirty little lies, if unconfronted, eventually become dirty BIG lies with all the accompanying baggage and problems. I liked how this one ended.

Great Actors

The story was well done and will help with many issues. A good Transgender movie. Funny- sad- happy - just see for yourself and forget the critics. Nice ending.
