@catyalexandre I don't think you understood the film. He's a man, not a woman.

Excelente pelicula, muy buena, excelente actuación de Hilary Swank, llevo por completo la pelicula adentrándose por completo en el papel. También su fuerte esta en el punto que toca la pelicula la cual lleva a realizarte muchas preguntas. muchas injusticias y un ambiente muy dañado, ya que todos en la pelicula se observan que tienen grandes problemas de personalidad, conducta y de justicia.
En fin muy buena pelicula que te mantiene pegado, quizás un poco predecible pero da gusto verla. Recomendada.

This powerful film tells the story of Teena Brandon, a woman who dresses like a man, cut her hair to look like a man, acts and convinced herself that she was a man. It's a story about courage, love and unfortunately prejudice.
Some scenes are painful to watch and it shows how people can be so stupid, cruel and violent just because they can't accept other's differences.
At the end I felt sad. Sad to know that this is a true story, to know that all actually happened.
Hilary Swank won an Academy Award for this film and it was totally deserving, she was amazing, totally believable!
