NEWS RELEASE:

HOLLAND – Holland is Ready’s free film series returns to the Park Theatre on Friday, Feb. 4, with the 7:30 p.m. showing of “Transamerica.”

The comedy-drama tells the story of Bree, a transsexual woman who goes on a road trip with her long-lost son. Felicity Huffman, who also stars in TV’s “Desperate Housewives,” won a Golden Globe award for her performance as Bree and was also nominated for an Academy Award.

One of the major themes of the film is the personal journey toward self-discovery, both for Bree and her son as they struggle for understanding and to forge a parent-child relationship.

The 2010-11 film series is being presented by Holland is Ready, a group of community leaders working for the safety, rights and inclusion of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered persons in the Lakeshore area.

Other upcoming films, also shown at 7:30 p.m. at the Park Theatre, 248 S. River St., are “Seven Passages” on Friday, March 11; and “The Bird Cage” on Friday, April 1.
