This 2015, a film about the real struggles of a transgender teen is about to open the eyes of many. In the movie, Elle plays the role of a confused and closeted transgender youth named Ramona, who seeks to fully transition into Ray.  “I definitely knew it would be a huge challenge to do. I definitely have never done anything like that before. I have a lot of transgender friends who go to my school and have made a transition over the summer,” shared Elle in an interview in Toronto. It was also at the Toronto Film Festival where the movie debuted last September 12 and received a standing ovation plus rave reviews.
