About the Movie
The Pearl is an intimate and cinematic profile of 4 transgender women that come out for the first time in their senior years. Set against the backdrop of logging towns in the Pacific Northwest, the visceral and observational story captures the indelible moment in time as they begin the long journey towards acceptance. Coming out as trans after decades of hiding from those closest to them, this is a story not of transitioning into womanhood, but rather explores what it means to leave behind living as a man.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Though it achieves a remarkable intimacy with its subjects, this study of four transgender women falls short of its intended power.
Fresh: There are many powerful moments, and one can't help but empathize with the four women as they experience their travails and triumphs. Their courage is often astonishing, as is their outlook.
Sensitive, engaging and beautiful. Such compelling stories, and so much information in this film, and even more tucked away in subtle, quiet moments. This is an important documentary, and it comes at an much needed time. Extraordinarily well done. Brava!
