A prescient film about the complications of transgendered transitions.

Carl(a) is a movie that stays with you for days after you see it. Her story provides a real world perspective (as opposed to reality tv) of the challenges faced by transgender individuals. Laverne Cox and Joslyn DeFreece both give really strong performances.

Stories like Carla's deserve to be told & seen! In a world that is still struggling with acceptance of others who lead lifestyles and have values different from one's own, it's heartbreaking to see that there are still those that additionally have to work hard to accept their own selves, too. The movie Carl(a) shares with us the true daily outward struggle that Carla goes through with family, with friends, with strangers - but one of the most powerful scenes of this movie really confronts Carla to think about who she really is/what defines her, ultimately proving that her own definition of herself is the hardest of all to come to terms with. Powerful story by the writers/director.

Wonderful film and very touching about acceptance and being comfortable with ones self, and society . I liked the roles played by Carl (a) and her grandpa the most. I also liked the conversation from the audience after the movie...

I saw the movie at the Ziegfeld NYC and it was outstanding! I wish I could be there to see it again. The director was way ahead of his time. I can't wait to see what's next!

"I was at the Carl(a) New York premiere at the Ziegfeld. This movie portrays in such a raw emotional way the challenges and pressures trans people deal with on a daily basis and yet was very hopeful at the same time. Really eye opening and highly recommend it!"

What a great indie film. Carla really hit a note that I think the world should listen too... find and be yourself! Was a smart way to tell a story thats in the headlines these days... the film production was real and raw. Nice job... i'll be looking for more from Eli H.

One of the most interesting concepts for a film. One that has never been done before, I see nothing but success stemming from this film. It brings a whole new perspective to the community in which it's trying to reach out to, nothing but high hopes for this film.

independent filming at its best! Not only is the theme of this movie very timely, but at the end of the day Carl(a) depicts a great love story, not only between two people but also the love of one's self. I hope this film gets the support it deserves.

I would love to see this movie. A hot topic right now around the world.

This was a beautiful and powerful film that captured the intimate and challenging journey it is to fit into your own skin, whatever that skin may look like. This left the audience inspired, and sparked ongoing discussions about acceptance, hope, and love.
