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.

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
