Elle Fanning is set to take her acting to new heights as she stars in About Ray where she plays a transgender child named Ray. A trailer has just been released and at first we are introduced to the boy Ray and his mother (Naomi Watts) and lesbian grandmother (Susan Sarandon). Ray is obviously an unusual child. He is also happy but in the back of his mind he thinks about the fact he was once a girl but now a guy. We also come to find that Ray and his father (Tate Donovan) are not on the best of terms. The trailer shows that the film will explore how this family must learn to accept and guide Ray through life as a guy and no longer as a girl.

About Ray is directed by Gaby Dellal and is written by Nikole Beckwith and Dellal as well. It will hit theaters September 18th. Scroll down to check out the trailer.
