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.

tear jerker ;)

amazing movie amazing acting, a little brash if u can take it ..? no huge twist & turns. but unbelievably heartfelt <based on real life>, & really real.

Totally Something else

This movie is possibly the best movie i have seen in a very long while. It has a dramatic plot with very well defined characters and the acting is amazing and leaves an ever lasting impression. Incredibly unforgettable.
