I watched it again the other night and it’s just as brutal and shocking as I remembered. Teena’s story changed our world. It’s a important one to remember. Swank played a awesome role.
This continent has become a continent of people requiring explanation for wrongs committed, as if it would stop this sickness that modern populations wallow.
One star explanation, would be to write you are all stupid, have been stupid, and most likely, if you don't change, be stupid and supply your stupidity into genes of your offsprings.
The ending after Brandon was shot and killed by the same sick guy, who local authorities enabled by not immediately arresting him, who raped Brandon, the movie ended. It was good to stop it here since it seemed that the producers brains went dead. It was a terrible ending.
Keep honoring your made up heroes. They will rot soon, but not soon enough.
The acting is great. Hillary Swank deserved her award!
The performances here are perfect, especially those of Hillary Swank (who won her first Oscar for her performance in this film)and Chloe Sevingy (who was nominated for an Oscar). First time director, Kimberly Pierce, has made a film that will not be forgotten. My only complaint was the graphic sexual scenes. If they make you uncomfortable, then foward through them. That's what I did. Many may not be able to stomach this film because of the no-holds barred grittiness of it. It's heartbreaking, and I could not get it off of my mind. I suppose they had to make it violent and brutal, so they could accuratly portray the horrible things that happened to Teena Brandon and her friends.
Truly a sad story. See it if you think you can handle it. You won't be able to shake this one off for a while.
This is a movie that revolves around the theme of self discovery. Basically, it teaches us to be who we are, and drop all our insecurities even though we may be outcasts. The movie also teaches us to drop our hate, which comes from fear about people who are different from us.
This movie has some extremely powerful sequences. Powerful enough to make you cry, even powerful enough to make you react to characters actions, I got so mad at one point I actually had genuine hate for one of the characters in the movie. But that's a good thing, because it means the film had an effect on me, as it will on you.
The DVD is nice but not great, it includes a short documentary, and an informative commentary by the director.

The item arrived when it was meant to and it was in brand new condition.
This movie is based on a true story and Hilary Swank plays the part so well you keep forgetting the trouble her character is in and the turmoil that is really unfolding.
This is not a movie for the faint hearted though as there are some brutal parts.
