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.

Adorable and unique indie romantic comedy that never quite leaves you knowing exactly how it will turn out. Expect a few intriguing twists. It questions not only modern dating, but gender, sexuality, and the very nature of love, and the struggle for acceptance.

There were parts that weren't deeply moving, while the movie as a whole managed to remain lighthearted and cute, even as controversial topics were discussed. I definitely recommend it to fans of romantic comedies, it might widen your perspective a bit.
