The Synopsis for Boys Don't Cry (1999) 1080p

Based on actual events. Brandon Teena is the popular new guy in a tiny Nebraska town. He hangs out with the guys, drinking, cussing, and bumper surfing, and he charms the young women, who've never met a more sensitive and considerate young man. Life is good for Brandon, now that he's one of the guys and dating hometown beauty Lana; however, he's forgotten to mention one important detail. It's not that he's wanted in another town for GTA and other assorted crimes, but that Brandon Teena was actually born a woman named Teena Brandon. When his best friends make this discovery, Brandon's life is ripped apart.

The Reviews for Boys Don't Cry (1999) 1080p

Audacious, painful and heartbreaking.Reviewed byMax_cinefilo89Vote: 10/10

This film could be easily dismissed, given its subject, as a "lesbian love story" or, as some called it, a "chick-with-a-d*ck-flick" (actually, that's what they said of Transamerica, but in a way it works for this one, too). Those definitions are disrespectful and very reductive. Boys Don't Cry is one of the most gripping and brutal dramas ever made, and it stands the test of time thanks to its audacity and its brilliant central performance, courtesy of the heartbreaking Hilary Swank.

Swank stars as Teena Brandon, a 20-year old girl from Lincoln, Nebraska, who's right in the middle of a "sexual identity crisis" (her own words). This crisis causes her some trouble with the law, and she decides to run away, more specifically to Falls City. Once there, she starts a new life, with a new name (Brandon Teen), a new haircut and socks down her pants. It's under these circumstances that she meets Lana (Chloe Sevigny), who will begin a passionate relationship with Brandon, unaware of "his" real nature. But what's gonna happen when the truth leaks out?

On the surface, Boys Don't Cry could sound like a simple "lesbian flick", but that would be like saying American History X is just about skinheads. True, this film is about love, but it's also a careful, unflinching study of identity, hope and fear. The last one plays a significant part in the third act, as some of the characters' (most notably John, cunningly played by Peter Sarsgaard) fear of something they don't understand will have tragic consequences.

Director Kimberly Peirce tells this painful true story without judging anyone, so that the performances can speak for themselves: Swank is staggering in a role rivaled only by her equally tear-inducing turn in Million Dollar Baby (she deservedly won an Oscar for both performances). She makes Brandon appear like a human being, not a freak, and that makes her story even more uncomfortable to watch in certain parts. The supporting players excel as well, Sevigny (who was Oscar-nominated for the role of Lana) and Sarsgaard delivering the first of many riveting contributions to independent cinema.

Consistently moving, occasionally hard to watch (there's a rape scene which might upset the weak of stomach), Boys Don't Cry is a daring, powerful effort that demands to be seen. And despite its title, it's very likely to make all audiences shed a tear, no matter the gender or inclination. This is a movie that won't leave you indifferent.

A Moving Piece of Filmmaking.Reviewed byflickjunkie-3Vote: 7/10

Boys Don't Cry was a major success with the critics and the Academy Award's, so I looked forward to seeing it. Easily one of the best films of the past year, Boys Don't Cry is a moving experience that deserved all the credit it got, and then some.

The film takes for its source material the true story of Brandon Teena (Hilary Swank), a girl who, well, just wants to be a boy. A sex-changing (getting her hair cut and sticking a dildo down her pants) credit sequence sees our hero(ine) at first on the pull, duping a local girl into a bit of nookie, and then on the run, when the truth about her sexuality rears its bizarre head. A fugitive of the law, as well as a few irate townsfolk, a twist of fate leads to her befriending a bunch of trailer-trash misfits and, temporarily, enjoying a new-found freedom under her manly guise. Of course, it's all going to go horribly wrong - particularly when she falls in love with the local girlie sweetheart (Chloe Sevigny).

Chloe Sevigny, who plays the girl Brandon falls in love with, deserved to win an Academy Award. Her performance still lives in my memory, and it has been some time since I first saw Boys Don't Cry. Hilary Swank, who did receive an Oscar, pulls off an absolute barnstormer of a performance as Brandon Teena, it is easily one of the boldest and most memorable performances I saw in the 20th century. Kimberley Pierce is also another stand-out, she is in the director's chair, and she hardly got any praise for her amazing effort that she put into this film. I applaud everyone involved in Boys Don't Cry, even the one's who got little credit, particularly Brendan Sexton III (who plays a trouble-making misfit) and Andy Bienen (co-writer).

Groundbreaking performances and a brilliant debut directing effort make this film unmissable.

I rate Boys Don't Cry 9 out of 10.

Boys Don't Lie (well)Reviewed byj-lacerraVote: 5/10

Boys Don't Cry is an ambitious movie, which chronicles the tragedy of a transgender attempt by its main character, played by Hilary Swank, to be the male she believes she was meant to be. Swank does not have to persuade us, the viewers, that she is a male. We know she is Hilary Swank, actress. What she has to do is persuade us that her character can fool the other characters in the movie that she is a guy. This I never bought for even a flashing moment.

Given her small hands, slight build, delicate features, and female voice, I am certain Brandon (Swank) would have been 'clocked', or outed, in a few seconds, both by men and by women. I never for one moment believed she could have fooled a soul, let alone a girl-friend and some beer-buddies. This, of course, is the ruination of the film's power for me. Also, it is the total depreciation of Swank's character for me.

That said, that the critical linchpin of the story was a farce for me, the movie sinks into the realm of disbelief. Further, I found neither the rape scene nor the murder scene shocking or particularly repulsive. Just another instance of movie violence.

I have used the term 'for me' quite often in this review. That is because I realize that many reviewers were convinced, shocked, and impressed. It is just that I was not. Worth seeing to draw your own conclusions.
