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

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

Description: When Brandon Teena, a young man with an infectious, aw-shucks grin and an angelic face that's all angles, wanders into Falls City, Nebraska, he takes to the town like it's a second skin. In little time he's fallen in with a gang of goofy if temperamental redneck boys, found himself a girlfriend, and befriended enough people to form something of a small family. In fact, it's the best time Brandon's ever had. However, there are shadows looming over Brandon's life: a court date for grand theft auto, a checkered criminal record, and a seemingly innocuous speeding ticket that could prove to be his undoing. Why? Because as it turns ou ... (more)

90 Queer Movies to See Before You Die... (100 movies items)

"One of the most BRUTALLY HONEST films I've ever seen in my entire life. Near documentary-like in it's moody, murky realism, I've been to towns like this one, I know the kind of people that live there, and the kind of environment the local populace harbors. Over time, some have gone on to criticize this film--I think that sting is mainly due to the upset over Swank beating Annette Bening in the Best Actress race. But I personally think this film is near-flawless, if you were to tell me back then"
