Adam is having Miriam’s baby – and yeah, it’s complicated.

Two 4 One is a sweet gender-bender of a light comedy starring comedian Gavin Crawford, whose transition from female to male is interrupted by an unexpected (and medically improbable) pregnancy.

The Victoria, B.C.-filmed feature debut from Maureen Bradley 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.

Still, the acting is uniformly unforced and the tone is gentle throughout the turns, making a viewing of the quietly successful Two 4 One a bargain at even twice the price.
