What are people saying?

  • Ally's rating of the film Different for Girls

    A lighthearted, positive film about a transgendered individual is something quite pleasant to see indeed. To say this film was ahead of its time is pretty unfortunate, but true nonetheless considering the very few films about a topic still very controversial in 2012 - and this film did it in a comedic, respectful way! The film had its faults, that's true, but how normalized the center topic was really enjoyable.
