THIS 2016 DOCUMENTARY recounts four years—from late adolescence to young adulthood—in the life of Bennett (né Rachael) Wallace. Real Boy is an enthralling, intimate, and poignant film, and it is a pleasure to watch. Director Shaleece Haas, who tirelessly followed Bennett on his literal and figurative journey, slept on floors, hung out at music clubs, and accompanied him on road trips, capturing 200 hours of footage.
