We watched that movie a few months ago. I downloaded it, but if it was showing in Cinemas in the Philippines I’d be happy to pay for my ticket twice! Before that, the only movie I knew about trans relationships was Soldier’s Girl. Well, this 2014 movie brings back trans relationships to the big screen, and it’s same quality as the best modern rom coms.
The plot: Boy Meets Girl is a tender, poignant, sexy, romantic coming of age romantic comedy about three twenty-somethings living in Kentucky: Robby, (Michael Welch, Twilight) and his best friend since childhood, Ricky, a gorgeous transgender girl, have never dated. Lamenting the lack of eligible bachelors, Ricky finds herself attracted to a girl she meets in the coffee shop where she works. Francesca is a beautiful young debutante waiting for her Marine fiancé to return from the war. Ricky and Francesca strike up a friendship, and maybe a little more, which forces Robby to face his true feelings for Ricky. This is a sex/human positive modern fable and identification with its story and themes cross all gender and sexual orientation lines.
Here’s the trailer:
