Different for Girls (1996)
Excellent, Much Better Than I Expected......
I began to watch this film thinking that it would be about the usual prejudice and queer bashing.......
What I realized is that it was a very touching drama about a post-op male to female transsexual and a former male schoolfriend.
I thoroughly enjoyed this and have watched it 8 times in 3 days. It is so touching and tender and at the end, concentrates on the nice side of life. It makes me feel so humble.
It has given me a lot to think about how I was maybe a little more judgemental than I thought I was.
I have fallen for Rupert Graves, who plays the male schoolfriend,- I have visited his website and am going home to find the film, 'Damage', which I already have - and I have ordered 'Room With A View'.
Rupert and Steven are such a brilliant actors.
I can't believe that Steven Mackintosh, who played the very gentle and very ladylike, Kim, could be the same horrible guy who is 'The Street', thug and bullyboy from Prime Suspect 5.
Both excellent main actors, as well as a well known supporting cast, which included Charlotte Coleman, (who has sadly since died, aged 33, from an asthma attack), Saskia Reeves, Miriam Margolyes and Neil Dudgeon.
I have looked for the DVD on region 2 in this country, but I can only find it NTSC, Region 1.
Can anyone help ?
