About the Movie
After falling in love with a U.S. Army sergeant, an East Berlin boy named Hansel undergoes a sex-change operation so that he can legally marry his beloved. But the operation is botched, leaving the boy less than a man, but not quite a woman. Deserted in a Kansas trailer park, the boy/girl, now named Hedwig, reinvents himself/herself as a rock star.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Hedwig is a force of nature, burned out and jaded yet brimming with compassion and bursting with energy.
Fresh: The off-Broadway rock musical that pushes off from a botched sex-change operation is sweet dynamite on film.
Fresh: The film's not only funny and weird, it's oddly poignant.
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.
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.
This is my favorie movie!
This is a genious movie! the more I watch it, the more I see I like about it...
