Quotes about Two 4 One

"When we first meet Adam in the movie, he's just on the verge of finally getting comfortable in his skin and then the pregnancy thing happens, so boy does he get uncomfortable fast. Growing up gay in southern Alberta, I understand how it feels to be uncomfortable in your own skin. That's something I can relate to, but transitioning from female to male or male to female is something pretty unique. Luckily I have several friends who have done so or are in the process of doing so."
-- Gavin Crawford (source)

"In Two 4 One, Gavin Crawford plays Adam, a trans man who becomes pregnant with his exgirlfriend's baby. Adam is, obviously, a mixed bag of a character. But what's compelling about his narrative arc in Two 4 One is not that he's transgendered and not that he's pregnant, but that he's a man learning to navigate a complicated romantic relationship as he balances the demands he places upon himself to uphold an everchanging, self-defined sense of masculinity. Two 4 One is a romance, in other words, and Adam is a man in love."
-- Rebecca Tucker (source)

"The Victoria, B.C.-filmed feature debut from Maureen Bradley [Two 4 One] is sensitive and subtle and, given the premise, remarkably sure-handed. The script is neither jokey nor cliché. Instead, clever one-liners—Crawford's celibate transgender Adam drinks 'single-single' coffee—are slipped in smoothly. If there is fault to be found, it is that highly awkward situations are resolved with an efficiency that is more wishful thinking than reality."
-- Brad Wheeler (source)
