Storyline

Gerald is a yuppie-like transvestite in his thirties. His wife arrives home earlier than expected and discovers female attire spread over their apartment. Not knowing anything about his habit, she misinterprets this and throws him (and the attire) out of their home and marriage. He rents a room in Monica's house, recently divorced and around 50. Their relation- ship evolves from landlady/tenant over friends to lovers. Monica learns about, begins to understand and finally appreciates and supports Gerald- ine, Gerald's alter ego. His transvestitism, a rarely filmed subject, it's ups and downs, is treated with a lot of respect, warmth and humour. Written by Jan-Olov Agren <jan-olov.agren@interact.se>

Did You Know?

Goofs

After Gerald and Monica finish having sex he stands up and walks away from the bed. It is briefly seen that he is wearing white boxers, a goof in itself as he was not seen pulling them on after supposedly finishing intercourse. The scene then cuts to a different angle of him walking away from the bed and he is naked. See more »

Well crafted film -- and fun, too!
22 February 2007 | by (Spokane, WA) – See all my reviews

With this topic, it is so easy to take cheap shots. You know, the guy with hairy legs trying to look like Marilyn Monroe. Not here -- Adrian Pasdar does a superb job of making Gerald a REAL person, someone you care deeply about, and as a result you feel for his plight trying to live both as Gerald and Geraldine. Not only that, but as Geraldine, he looks HOT! And the chemistry between him and Julie Walters is electric. These are two characters who feel love for one another, and it comes through even when they simply look at each other over the breakfast table. Even the potentially cheesy sub-story line of corporate takeovers is believable, and you find yourself cheering at the end! At least I did!
