Beautiful, yet tragic!
18 April 2002 | by Jolene JohannaSee all my reviews

I recently viewed the documentary "Southern Comfort" and I can see why it won a prize at Sundance. This documentary chronicles the final year in the life of a transsexual man named Robert. It shows how prejudice and ignorance harms those whom are viewed to be "different" in our society. This film shows the love of Robert and Lola, as well as Robert's adopted family. I highly recommend this film.
