Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Hedwig is a force of nature, burned out and jaded yet brimming with compassion and bursting with energy. – Mark Caro, Chicago Tribune, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: The off-Broadway rock musical that pushes off from a botched sex-change operation is sweet dynamite on film. – Jay Carr, Boston Globe, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: The film's not only funny and weird, it's oddly poignant. – Desson Thomson, Washington Post, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: It's not a lark or a kitschy goof or a parody; it just is what it is and you can't tear your eyes away from it. – Stephen Hunter, Washington Post, Jun 24, 2010

I hate musicals but this was great

Ok so my ex wife rented this movie one time. I looked at her like she was crazy. Turned out it was an absolutely amazing movie. Did some research into it and now I make everyone watch it. To story, though twisted, is well written and entertaining. The Music is great with songs like Midnight Radio resembling something from Bowie. All around it is a great movie and musical.

THANK YOU!

This is my favorie movie!
