XY CHELSEA
June 7, 2019  | By David Bianculli

Showtime, 9:00 p.m. ET

 

DOCUMENTARY PREMIERE: This is the Showtime premiere of the new documentary XY Chelsea, which tells the story of trans woman Chelsea Manning, who was convicted and temporarily imprisoned for violating the Espionage Act of 2013, after leaking classified U.S. documents to Wikileaks. The former U.S. Army soldier and intelligence officer tells her reasons for disseminating those documents (which, among other things, detailed illegal torture practices by the military), and also describes her stay in prison, which was anything but uneventful.
