Consensus: 3 Generations squanders a worthy premise on a thinly written story that focuses on dramatic signposts at the expense of genuine character development.

Director Gaby Dellal's 3 Generations encourages its audience to look at the transgender community with a humane and compassionate eye, but her film will probably reinforce more perspectives than it changes.
