What are people saying?

  • El Biffo's rating of the film Girl Stroke Boy

    One of the first Transgender films! I suppose GLEN OR GLENDA (1953) gets credit for being the first, but this charming British comedy about a lad who brings his sweetheart home to meet the folks is more of a first in terms of being non-sensational and an actual story. Quite lighthearted, not nearly as serious as IN A YEAR WITH 13 MOONS, nonetheless broaching gender fluidity in a genuine way, with humor and warmth.
