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>

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 »

A sweet and very different love story with great dialogue
7 September 1999 | by aromatic-2See all my reviews

This one took me by surprise because i had often been disappointed by Adrian Pasdar in the past, but he caught the perfect balance in this performance, avoiding both farce and pathos while delivering humour and real emotions. The always-wonderful Julie Waters is terrific here, and anyone who has not yet scene her in 1983's Educating Rita should rent it immediately (marvelous film). The rest of the supporting characters are well-played as well, many marvelously eccentric without going over the top. This one is fun.
