Show Notes

In this week's episode, we focus on Kimberly Peirce's 1999 biographical drama BOYS DON'T CRY, starring Hilary Swank in her Oscar-winning role as Brandon, a trans male living in rural Nebraska in the early '90s.

Differing from previous episodes a bit, we discussed general thoughts and observations on the movie through just a couple of our categories: "You Already Know," "Let's Check It Out," "Like a Virgin," and "Parting Shots." "Double Rainbow," "The Good Son-off," and "Remake This!" were tabled this week and replaced with an interview with James Barnes, an out and proud trans man and corporate trainer/coach who discussed a wide assortment of things regarding BOYS DON'T CRY and the overall trans experience with Hollywood (begins around the 47-minute mark).

Films discussed during "Whatcha Been Watching Lately": THE WOLF OF WALL STREET and IN THE HEIGHTS.
