Boys Don't Cry
First time director Kimberly Peirce delivers a profoundly insightful and thoroughly heartrending film that hints at the entire spectrum of human experience.

At its core, Boys Don't Cry is a story of one person living an incredible, dangerous double life in an attempt to find unconditional love. Based on the real life of Teena Brandon, this is the story of a teenage girl who preferred to live as a boy in a tiny Nebraskan town.

The film reconstructs Brandon's unbelievable odyssey, from first appearance as a charismatic boy/man, to budding romance with the cool and reckless Lana (Chloë Sevigny), to the tragic outcome that ultimately drove this disturbing tale from America's heartland into the headlines all over the world.
