Funny and provocative, Boy Meets Girl vividly captures the giddy excitement, sexual heat, and inherent heartache of "non-traditional" love in a small town. Ricky (Michelle Hendley) is a 21-year-old trans girl living in Kentucky. Her only real friend, straight-laced Robby, has been her trusty, totally platonic, confidant for over 15 years. Her day job slinging lattes is merely a stepping-stone toward her goal of being a famous New York designer. She's confident, cool, and completely ready for something new - and then her world is transformed when an enchanting debutante saunters into her life. Triggering fresh feelings and experiences, this unlikely connection conjures up intense questions about identity while uncovering ghosts from Ricky's past. Indie-film veteran Eric Schaeffer (My Life's in Turnaround, If Lucy Fell) builds a compelling, compassionate world that focuses on the emotions and messy challenges of complex people navigating complicated relationships.

Groundbreaking and funny too!
18 November 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie accomplishes the rare feat of being sexually groundbreaking, meaningful, romantic, and very, very funny, sometimes all at once. Screen newcomer Michelle Hendley, herself a trans actress, plays a young woman in transition, and the story takes her into several relationships, all interesting, all believable. The movie has a "La Ronde" quality to it and director Eric Schaeffer is able to shift tones seamlessly from comedy to heartfelt and back again. It's a remarkable film, one which has already won myriad awards in LDBTQ festivals but could easily cross over into the mainstream. It has something for everyone to identify with. Truly a marvelous experience.
