Anything, directed by Tim McNeill, stars Matt Bomer, Maura Tierney and John Carroll Lynch. Bomer plays Freda, a trans-sex worker living in Los Angeles who befriends her widowed neighbor, Early Landry, from Mississippi.
Not surprisingly, the film has received plenty of criticism for featuring a cisgender actor playing a trans woman and for perpetuating the stereotype that trans women are sex workers. Bomer hasn’t responded to the criticism but Mark Ruffalo, who is an executive producer of the film, did.
To the Trans community. I hear you. It's wrenching to you see you in this pain. I am glad we are having this conversation. It's time.
