        Clip #1 | Real Boy Film Module

        In this excerpt from the Independent Lens film Real Boy, Bennett enters the hospital for chest reconstruction surgery and is both touched and surprised that his mom Suzy came to be with him for support, despite her own reservations. She then gets supportive advice from another mom whose son is also transitioning, and who reassures Suzy. “We don’t have to understand it completely but we have to be there, love them and support them,” she tells Suzy. “There’s so many other people in the world who want to bring them down; we have to make sure we’re not those people.”
