Gun Hill Road 2.0 stars

Gun Hill Road movie poster

Esai Morales is very good as the hard macho con paroled home to a Puerto Rican section of the Bronx. Harmony Santana, a transgender teen actor, is beyond very good as the son whose vulnerable hunger to become a woman infuriates the father. An excellent cast, including Judy Reyes as the mom caught in the middle, is both served and simplified by the issues-agenda script of director Rashaad Ernesto Green. His blunt, candid realism finds sensitive time for the boy’s dress-up scene, a tender salute to femininity. 2011.
