VS 2018, 92 min, Silas Howard
English, no subtitles

A Brooklyn couple has always known that their four-year-old son is more interested in fairy tale princesses than toy cars. But when his preschool director points out that his gender-nonconforming play may be more than a phase, the couple is forced to rethink their roles as parents and spouses.

Wat als die prinsessenjurk meer is dan een bevlieging?

Alex en Greg Wheeler zien een grote toekomst in voor hun vierjarige zoon Jake. Deze is erg slim en verkiest Cinderella boven G.I. Joe. Op de vooravond van de inschrijving voor de kleuterschool worden de ouders door het hoofd van de school aangemoedigd om Jake’s gendervariant te benadrukken, zodat hij zich kan onderscheiden van de rest om zodoende een studiebeurs te krijgen.

Claire Danes, Jim Parsons, Priyanka Chopra en Octavia Spencer spelen de hoofdrollen in deze bewerking van een tot nadenken stemmend toneelstuk waarin we met een grappige en ontroerende blik ouders zien worstelen met het opvoeden van een gender non conform-kind.



Roze Filmdagen (meaning ‘Pink Film Days’) is the largest film festival for LGBTQ films in the Netherlands.

The wide and varied selection of films includes romantic comedies, provoking documentaries and everything in between. The variety in films reflects the diversity of the community. Besides several focus programmes we proudly showcase numerous short films that are (just like our feature and documentary films) sparkling, provocative, urgent, and engaging.

Join our cinematic cultural community experience that goes on for eleven days and meet and mingle with filmmakers and visitors who celebrate all aspects of sexual diversity.

But above all enjoy one of the 138 films we selected for you and hopefully you’ll be coming back for more.

Virtually all screenings are in English, or have English subtitles. There are a few exceptions but the listings in the mostly bilingual printed program, or on our website, will inform you about this.

Enjoy the festival!

Looking forward to seeing you,
