Felicity Huffman isn’t like the other stars of Desperate Housewives. She doesn’t date NBA players or shag strange men in backs of vans (allegedly, of course). Instead, she’s interested in playing a man who wants to be a woman. Hmm… now who was I criticizing again?

Huffman stars in The Weinstein Company’s December 2nd limited release, The TransAmerica. Bree (Huffman) is a perfectly adjusted conservative transsexual woman. Born Stanley, a genetic male, she's about to take the final step to becoming the woman Stanley always wanted to be - until she finds out that she is the parent of a long-lost 17 year-old son. Afraid to tell the rebellious teenager the truth, Bree embarks on a journey with him that will challenge and change both their lives and bring them closer to the truth of their connection.

We received the trailer from the studio today and frankly, I couldn’t be less interested. The subject matter doesn’t bother me; I just don’t see me rushing to the theatres for it. The trailer flashes about eleventy-billion award logos as it proceeds to tell a bit too much of the story for my liking. However, I understand that with a subject matter that limits its appeal in the heartland, the studio has to do something to convince people this is not just a “tranny” flick.

TransAmerica stars Huffman, Kevin Zegers, Fionnula Flanagan, and Graham Greene and is released nationwide on December 23rd. To view the trailer for yourself, click below!
