    Adam (2019)

    Homo Arigato: Contrast Fest: Adapted from Ariel Schrag’s eponymous – and controversial – novel, trans filmmaker Ernst’s feature directorial debut flips the rom-com’s comedy of errors narrative when Adam (Alexander), a cisgender teenage boy, is mistaken for a trans guy and goes along with it, especially because of how it affects his relationship with a young queer woman Gillian (Menuez).
