Trans actor Elliot Page has reflected on his trans drama film ‘Close To You’ and called it a “career highlight.”
In an interview with People Magazine, Page spoke highly of his movie as well as its director Dominic Savage.
“This was a complete highlight of my career, personally,” Page said in the interview. “[Director Savage’s] process, the experience of making a film in this way is not something I’ve done before. I feel grateful to be a part of his work and hope to do it again.”
‘Close To You’ is an unscripted and mostly improvised film set four years after the transitioning of a transgender man named Sam (played by Page) who left his life in Toronto to return to his much smaller hometown to attend a much-dreaded family reunion and celebrate his father’s birthday.
An official synopsis of the film said that as Sam returns home, he “runs into Katherine (played by Hillary Baack), a friend from high school with her own complicated life now, and feelings from their unresolved past begin to bubble to the surface.”
Sam’s parents are played by Wendy Crewson and Peter Outerbridge.
