Beatriz is a holistic healer trained in massage, reiki and other therapies who is invited to stay for dinner at her rich clients' - Cathy and Grant's - home after her car breaks down. They're having guests over for a party and once they start arriving she couldn't look more out of place with her bare face, casual clothes and 5 foot 2 stature. The guests try and be polite towards this woman, who could clearly never be a part of their own social circles, but she's strangely drawn to one guest in particular; Grant's business partner Doug Strutt. As the evening wears on and the guests get progressively more drunk, she starts to sense a prejudice in the air in regards to both her nationality and her career choice. But her own prejudices come to the forefront when she discovers Doug's passion for hunting, and her disgust is something she just can't hide.

A new Amazon series is now available online, with Jeffrey Tambor as an ageing parent battling gender dysphoria.
Potentially one of the most important dramas to ever hit the internet is now being aired on Amazon Prime. Starring Jeffrey Tambor as a recently un-closeted transgender parent, 'Transparent' presents a heart-warming story of identity, love and acceptance.
Jeffrey Tambor in a very different kind of acting role
Tambor (known for his roles in 'Arrested Development' and 'The Hangover') takes on what could be the most challenging role of his career in 'Transparent'. The series depicts a loving parent named Maura Pfefferman - formerly known as Mort - who has decided after 70-years-old of living that she can no longer dress like the man she physically appears to be. In a brave move, she begins to transform herself into a woman, though it breaks her heart to see her beloved children so shocked and confused. Meanwhile, it seems she's not the only one who has been keeping secrets, and she's certainly not the only one battling inner demons.
Nights and Weekends removes practically all surrounding environment for its characters except two giant constructs: distance and time. Swanberg and Gerwig play James and Mattie, a young couple trying to make their romance work though he lives in Chicago, she in New York. Our introduction to this pair is remarkably efficient: With a single, fixed shot, James and Mattie enter an apartment and, without getting five feet past the door, breathlessly remove each other's clothing, small suitcase in the corner. No dialogue, but we get it.
