shocking and compelling drama about gender confusion, Hilary Swank giving a brilliant acting performance as Brandon Teena, a girl from Nebraska in the mid 1990's who dressed and acted like a boy
to cope with her sexual identity.
The drama is brought to the screen very delicately, without
being overly sentimental or ill-conceived and the performances of the cast, particularly Swank, make it a riveting watch.
