Storyline

Funny and provocative, Boy Meets Girl vividly captures the giddy excitement, sexual heat, and inherent heartache of "non-traditional" love in a small town. Ricky (Michelle Hendley) is a 21-year-old trans girl living in Kentucky. Her only real friend, straight-laced Robby, has been her trusty, totally platonic, confidant for over 15 years. Her day job slinging lattes is merely a stepping-stone toward her goal of being a famous New York designer. She's confident, cool, and completely ready for something new - and then her world is transformed when an enchanting debutante saunters into her life. Triggering fresh feelings and experiences, this unlikely connection conjures up intense questions about identity while uncovering ghosts from Ricky's past. Indie-film veteran Eric Schaeffer (My Life's in Turnaround, If Lucy Fell) builds a compelling, compassionate world that focuses on the emotions and messy challenges of complex people navigating complicated relationships. Schaeffer creates a ...

Adorable and funny
14 April 2015 | by Danielle GSee all my reviews

Adorable and unique indie romantic comedy that never quite leaves you knowing exactly how it will turn out. Expect a few intriguing twists. It questions not only modern dating, but gender, sexuality, and the very nature of love, and the struggle for acceptance. The acting was mostly excellent, although I will admit, there are a few times when it's blatantly obvious that this is a movie with a lower budget. A few lines are a bit rigid, but perhaps not the fault of the actors, but the writer. There were parts that weren't deeply moving, while the movie as a whole managed to remain lighthearted and cute, even as controversial topics were discussed. I definitely recommend it to fans of romantic comedies, it might widen your perspective a bit.
