Disclosure (2020) - Rotten Tomatoes

Disclosure (2020)



Critic Consensus: Disclosure engrossingly illuminates the history and effects of the way transgender lives are depicted onscreen -- and outlines how much progress still needs to be made.

Movie Info

Disclosure is an unprecedented look at the depiction of transgender people and experiences throughout the history of film and television. Over 100 years of footage, from A Florida Enchantment (1914) to Pose (2018), is woven together with the personal stories of prominent media figures like Laverne Cox, revealing how Hollywood has simultaneously reflected and manufactured our deepest beliefs and anxieties about gender. Disclosure shows both the consequences of depicting marginalized communities without their participation, and the liberatory potential of film and TV when their voices are centered.
