Critical Acclaim

Little Miss Westie follows two transgender siblings during their year of transition. When Luca was 11 and living as a girl, he competed in the Lil’ Miss Westie beauty pageant, a local rite of passage. He is now coaching his little sister Ren through her pageant experience in her first year living as a girl, all set against the backdrop of the 2016 election.
