Adapted from the critically acclaimed off-Broadway rock theatre hit, this is the story of an ‘internationally ignored’ rock singer, Hedwig. Surviving a botched sex change, she search for love and liberation through her songs.

Absolutely hilarious, but sadly so, in a laughing-through-tears way. Mitchell is fantastic as Hedwig (I want to party with him/her!) and really draws in the audience. The subject matter is much deeper than it first seems; I had to watch this film for many classes already, and it always brings apart comparisons and analyses of self-identity. Its nature makes it accessible to everyone.
Sabe quando você procrastina um filme por anos e anos e quando, finalmente, assiste tem vontade de se chutar por ter procrastinado? Então, é isso que eu tô sentindo depois de terminar Hedwig. Lindo e com uma das trilhas sonoras mais legais da história.
