Here's how Amazon describes the movie: "Anything's Possible is an uplifting and delightfully modern Gen Z coming-of-age story that follows Kelsa, a confident high school girl who is trans, as she navigates her senior year. When her classmate — nerdy-but-cute Khal — gets a crush on her, he musters up the courage to ask her out, despite the drama he knows it could cause. What transpires is a high school romance that showcases the joy, tenderness, and pain of young love."
"Anything's Possible" also stars Renée Elise Goldsberry, Simone Joy Jones, Kelly Lamor Wilson, Courtnee Carter, Manu Narayan, Grant Reynolds, Naveen Paddock, Caroline Travers, Noah Pacht, Ken Lutz, Lav Raman, and Shawn McClurg. The script is by Ximena Garcia Lecuona. The movie will debut on Prime Video on July 22.
In April, Reign opened up to Them about starring in the film. At first, she couldn't wrap her head around the fact that she'd landed the role. "It's ironic: The movie's called 'Anything's Possible,' but I didn't believe it," she explained. "My whole life, I'd wanted to be an actress, but even after I got that call I was telling myself, I'm a Black trans girl — I'm not going to be the lead in a movie. That's not feasible. I'll be lucky to play someone's friend."
Porter told Variety of the movie, "This is an aspirational story. It's almost like a fairytale. We know that. It's a look at what we can be. That's what we as artists get to do — look at what we can be and what we should be."
