A trans feminine gender queer coming into their identity and entering a beauty pageant!
The new film by Ruben Alves (The Gilded Cage) is a feel-good story about overcoming hardship and prejudice, with a fun and light-hearted commentary on how attitudes towards gender are shaped.
It is the best kind of thought-provoking film: one that is celebratory and joyful. Ever since childhood, Alex (Alexandre Wetter) had wanted to enter the annual Miss France beauty pageant, despite being a boy. However, adolescence was not kind and Alex suffered huge blows to their self-esteem and direction. When an unexpected encounter allows Alex to once more pursue their dreams, they do everything they can to transcend the traditional binary gender definitions that threaten to hold them back.
Miss is the first major acting role for Wetter, a model who has made a career out of defying gender norms. Wetter’s personal journey makes them the perfect person to play Alex in this inspirational film that inspires us to rethink the status quo.
