The Mask You Live In follows boys and young men as they struggle to stay true to themselves while negotiating America’s narrow definition of masculinity. (Dir. by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, 2015, USA, 97 mins., Not Rated)

This is a rental of The Loft Cinema, presented by Child & Family Resources.”
Carolyn’s note: Sounds like a relevant topic in 2020, with the strength of the women’s and #MeToo movements, for youth growing up male in America now. I grew up in rural Hawaii with 2 brothers (no sister, who was a stillbirth), and I raised an only child/son here in Tucson, Arizona. Thus I was surrounded by concerns about raising a male child, having experienced two brothers (one older, one younger) confront their challenges of dating, the Draft (during the Vietnam Conflict), career choices/changes, emotional challenges, having children or not.
