Based on actual events. Brandon Teena is the popular new guy in a tiny Nebraska town. He hangs out with the guys, drinking, cussing, and bumper surfing, and he charms the young women, who've never met a more sensitive and considerate young man. Life is good for Brandon, now that he's one of the guys and dating hometown beauty Lana; however, he's forgotten to mention one important detail. It's not that he's wanted in another town for GTA and other assorted crimes, but that Brandon Teena was actually born a woman named Teena Brandon. When his best friends make this discovery, Brandon's life is ripped apart.Written by
I just couldn't get through this movie. It was too long and painful to sit through.(Not painful as in gut-wrenching but painful as in just plain boring!) Usually I like movies based on reality but I had trouble garnering any sympathy for this bunch. I know I probably missed the best part by stopping the movie at about the 3/4 point, but I just couldn't take any more. Whether they are real or imagined it gets tiring watching people self-destruct at a snail's pace. I just didn't care what happened to them - good, bad or indifferent! It was like watching paint dry....you know there are a thousand other things you could be doing that would be more stimulating! As for the acting, it was ok. Nothing to write home about. Would I recommend this movie to anyone? Certainly, if they were having trouble sleeping! 3 out of 10
