Directed by Rebekah Fortune and written by Peter Machen, Just Charlie is an award winning British drama that tells the emotionally charged coming out story of young Charlie, played by Harry Gilby.
Charlie is a popular, handsome, much loved soccer player who must reconcile her gender identity within herself and within a context of ignorant and hostile attitudes by family andcommunity. Coming out as female is a courageous and confronting process not only for Charlie, but also for those who love her.
Harry Gilby's superb debut performance will linger with you long after this powerfully moving film has finished.
Director Fortune masterfully balances how Charlie deals with her gender dysphoria and how the people around her react - Cineuropa
