    Has anyone seen this movie? It's about the story of Teena Brandon who had a sexual identity crisis. She wanted to be a boy, so she dressed and acted as one. She visits this town called Falls City where she meets the girl of her dreams, Lana. There she makes friends and finds a home.

    That is until they find out she is actually a girl. Then her two male friends rape and murder her, killing another friend with a baby in the process. Lana didn't care about what gender 'Brandon' was, she stilled loved her till the end.

    Here to an article about what happened: http://images.google.com/imgres?img...don&um=1&start=1&sa=X&oi=images&ct=image&cd=1

    This happened in 1993, so I'm sure some of you have seen the movie or heard about what happened.

    I highly recommend watching this movie. It's phenomenal.

    Is this a new movie in the cinemas?

    If not, I guess I have to find it somewhere on the DVD.

    That's an interesting article there.

    No, the movie was made a while ago. Not sure when. But everything happened in 1993. Just torrent the movie. That's what I did.

    Also, Hilary Swank is in it. She has short hair! :O

    Yes, I've seen this film. I just recently bought it actually. I showed it to my roommate a year or two ago and he was severely depressed after the movie. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie, but I wouldn't just recommend it to anyone. You really have to be in a good mood for a drama and be prepared for some queer issues.

    If you've seen and enjoyed this film you would probably like Soldier's Girl.

    Once again, my roommate was pretty depressed after this movie.
    Plot Outline:

    The true story of a young soldier beaten to death for falling in love with a transgendered nightclub performer.

    I absolutely loved this film and the ending is absolutely intense.
