Although he is homophobic, his investigation causes him to be rejected by others, forcing him to seek help from the people he once despised. Written by
For what it's worth, Mona's dead body on the morgue table is a woman's, not a man's. The crests of the iliac, the hip bone, are pronounced, as they are in a woman's pelvic girdle. What this means is that the body was born female and couldn't have been a genotypic male with added breasts, which is the explanation offered by the M.E. See more »

Credits at the beginning of the film use full names for the following people: Audrey Marie Anderson, Marcus Lyle Brown, Bradley Harrison Picklesimer. This differs from the closing credits, which use Audrey Anderson, Marcus Brown, and Bradley Picklesimer. Bradley Picklesimer is mis-credited in both the opening and closing credits and her last name should read Picklesheimer. See more »
Somebody like you killed Mona; someone who couldn't deal with their own sexual impulses.
If GLAAD picked this film to compete for an award, it certainly makes it worth the time. Unfortunately, it went up against The Laramie Project and The Matthew Sheppard Story. It didn't have a chance.
But a GLAAD nomination and Billy Bob Thornton, Patricia Arquette, William Devane, and Sela Ward is more than enough to peak my interest.
It's a neonoir about a transsexual who is shot, and the power (Devane) in the small Parrish wants it to just go away. I wonder why. The Sheriff (Thornton) goes along until he finds he is on the outs and set up to be removed.
Thornton plays pretty much the same character that he did with Halle Berry.
Lots of twists and turns including the solution.
Great work by Thornton and Arquette.
