Did You Know?

Trivia

Drag Queen Cassy Carrington was originally planned to lip sync to the song "hope there's someone" by Antony & the Johnsons. The production company could not afford to license the famous track so they came up with "Poor wayfaring stranger" by Andreas Scholl. See more »

Goofs

Between 1:12 and 1:13, when Lukas is cleaning his room, you see the red "z" with it's dot above (like an upside-down question mark) on the balcony screen. When Fabio sits down on the window sill, the "z" has disappeared (only the dot stays), and it appears again afterwards. See more »

Probably of interest to FtM guys
8 August 2019 | by mandeli-nSee all my reviews

I didn't like this movie and it was difficult to watch, I actually made an effort to get through it. I guess it might be recommended to FtMs, because it shows both fight and win, and Idk if other better movies exist that have that in them.

But if you are just a casual person, this will probably make you suffer as it did me. I can not command anything at all in "Romeos", not a single acting job, not the script nor music, nothing. May be realism? That seemed to be fine to me, but I am no FtM myself, so who knows if it's even there.
