Pretending to be a missionary in her quest to bail out Toby and eventually taking long before him not knowing whether that Bree was hermaphrodite leave alone being his father. Similarly, Toby’s newfound catch in the hotel does not exactly know exactly what he was gay based on how he responds to her romantic approaches and even kissing. In this film, ultimate gender performance is apparent in the way each manages realize their respective motives whereby Toby becomes a distinguished porn actor and Bree waitress in a place where there earlier her role encompassed washing dishes. Both key characters deem they represent the opposite of what they are based on gender. Toby while indulging oneself into the acts of gay appears to be the recipient who through his charm arouses those of the same orientation. This is also evident with Bree who through her conduct all males whom she encounters end up exhibiting interests in without suspecting anything except that kid in the hotel. The latter among all other scenes is the sole incident, which I can concretely contend Bree utterly failed but all others she managed to masquerade as a woman. Conversely, Toby is successful all through and no incident where he seems to contradict who he is evident in the easy prostates to supplement their budget and lie proceeds were from selling drugs. In the film, the essence of nudity encompasses unveiling controversial aspects used to develop varied scenes constituting the entire movie as well as satiating audiences’ curiosity. For instance, Toby through nudity manages to know exactly Bree’s condition, which from the onset of the film viewers could only hear through discussion. In addition, nudity serves the role of advancing plots such that the film continues to progress, which is evident with the case of Toby having known who exactly Bree is an incident of a rift between them develops until reconciliation at the end of the film. The film though its scenes might seem different from that of The Hitch-Hiker (1953) there earlier I watched, their general basis encompasses how the involved and key characters manage to scrutinize the reality of each other. In both films, there are hitchhikers characters though in the latter seems to be relayed in quite a number of scenes compared to that of Transamerica whereby peyote shaman only emerges and disappears after having advanced the plot of revealing Bree’s condition.
