Critic Reviews for The Garden Left Behind
It's one thing to decide to make a movie about the struggles of the transgender community and violent attacks on it. But it's far harder to turn that message into a film as natural and graceful as The Garden Left Behind.
Flavio Alves' The Garden Left Behind captures the complexity of an undocumented trans Latina's life in Queens.
Boasting strong production values despite an obviously low budget, The Garden Left Behind is a little film with a lot on its mind. Yet it is not a didactic film about trans life, thank God. (Includes video interview with director Flavio Alves)
Regrettably, the movie's general indistinctness only adds to its sense of emotional exploitation.
A few scenes feel a bit staged, some dialogue is too wooden, and the ending feels forced and telegraphed. Nevertheless, the depiction of the transgender world for these women of color captures profound, lived-in experiences.
