Just finished watching Boy Meets Girl on Netflix. I have to say this film is very bold, because a real transgender actress is in it. The film is different, because it’s obviously different. It’s about a transgender person. The transgender actress is pretty good in it. Michelle Hendley is a first time actress and a real transgender, and she is keeping it real in the film. Michelle Hendley is able to convey the authentic transgender feeling across the screen to a straight person like me, and I think that is really good. Of course, I don’t really know anything about an authentic transgender lifestyle would be. I think I have a little bit of an idea how transgender person would go through life by watching this film. Of course, I could be completely clueless still.
At first, I thought Michelle Hendley is a non-transgender female who took up the transgender role in the film. After I went online and searched for more information on the actress, then I realized she is a real transgender. Anyhow, Boy Meets Girl is a bold romantic comedy, and I think it’s great! I don’t think this film is for everyone, because not everyone is open mind enough to sit through a film that is about transgender human being. I think transgender people are still being considered as something taboo by many people. Nonetheless, transgender people are human being in my opinion, and so we should not judge the book by its cover. It’s cliche to say something like this, but life is abundantly cliche!
I’ve found a really good YouTube video which has an interview of Michelle Hendley on Boy Meets Girl. If you’re interested, you can watch it right after the break. Enjoy!!!
