"You want your mother to lock you up again, is that it? Is that what you want? Then why don't you just admit your a dyke?"

Based on actual events, the critically-acclaimed Boys Don't Cry tells the heartbreaking true story of a young woman suffering from a "sexual identity crisis". 20-year-old Teena Brandon (Swank) does not perceive herself as a woman. She sexually desires other fema... read more

Very depressing film with tragic conclusion...

This film totally blew me away. This is one of the single most powerful films that have ever been made. There are a lot of powerful films that I love but there aren't that many which I could probably watch over and over again. I am glad to say that this is one of them that I could. I knew I needed to have a clear mind of what to expect with this film but it was too horrific to not like. This was a... read more

Moviewatcher122's 2014 Film Diary: January (55 movies items)

"January 24 "I hate my life." "I hate your life, too." First of all I think Hillary Swank nailed the role very well. I also loved what it had to say and I'm also surprised that this was based on a true story. Although I already knew how the movie ended, (I blame the Nostalgia Critic.) it happened when I least expected it and I love it when movies are able to do that. "
