Boys Don't Cry
An Oscar winning performance by Hilary Swank as the confused, abused, victim of small-town and small-minded prejudice. Deceiving an entire community into accepting her as a man where (s)he is readily accepted until the truth is out, Boys Don't Cry is compelling, absorbing and ultimately tragic. It is a timeless story of star-crossed love told in a simple, non judgmental way that will have you engrossed from beginning to end. Based on a true event.
“Marked throughout by a lovely, lyrical ambiguity... showing strange ... and yes beautiful ... ways that
love can go”
