Hillary Swank in an Amazing Performance
This has to be one of the best movies I've seen in a long time. Hillary Swank's performance as the trans-gendered lead is heartwrenching. She is a beautiful woman with a strong face carry the haircut which makes it all the more believeable. I watched this with my aunt and I recommend for anyone if they can put their prejudiced and ignorance aside to watch this beautiful film.
