ABOUT RAY (previously know as Three Generations) is an upcoming drama film directed by Gaby Dellal (On a Clear Day, Angels Crest) from a screenplay by Nikole Beckwith (Stockholm, Pennsylvania), starring Naomi Watts, Elle Fanning and Susan Sarandon.
The film tells the stirring and touching story of three generations of a family living under one roof in New York as they must deal with the life-changing transformation by one that ultimately affects them all. Ray (Fanning) is a teenager who has come to the realization that she isn’t meant to be a girl and has decided to transition from female to male. His single mother, Maggie (Watts), must track down Ray’s biological father (Tate Donovan) to get his legal consent to allow Ray’s transition. Dolly (Sarandon), Ray’s lesbian grandmother is having a hard time accepting that she now has a grandson. They must each confront their own identities and learn to embrace change and their strength as a family in order to ultimately find acceptance and understanding.
