Boys don't cry

BOYS DON’T CRY. USA, 1999. Director: Kimberly Peirce. With Hilary Swank (Brandon Teena), Chloë Sevigny (Lana), Peter Sarsgaard (John). Colour, 118 minutes.
37th edition - 1999
The recreation of Brandon Teena’s real life case, that of a young Nebraska transsexual who was raped and murdered by his male friends in 1993 when they found out he was actually a woman in spite of his male looks and life, gave admirable Hilary Swank her first Oscar as an actress in a leading role, after first having won in Gijón. The film has a tragic feel, but without melodramatic excesses; is precise in its criticism, but far from being a pamphlet; upfront in its chronicle of sordid America’s white trash, but tactful; moving as a song for tolerance, even if restrained. Boys don’t cry remains a worthy film… and a bizarre one.

All films will be shown in their original version with Spanish subtitles.
