Marguerite, South Africa. 22 April 2014

Hilary Swank gives an Oscar-winning performance as Teena Ray Brandon, a young woman living as a man. The film depicts the tragic circumstances surrounding the lives of trans gender people, particularly those who live in small, unsophisticated communities where tolerance and understanding of such medical conditions is almost nil.
Teena, calling herself Brandon, falls in love with Lisa Tisdel (portayed in an Oscar-nominated performamce by Chloe Savigny), who, to her joy, reciprocates her feelings. Unfortunately for the young couple, jealousy and bigotry, in the shape of Lisa's ex-con friends, John Lister (Peter Sarsgaard) and Tom Nissen (Brendan Sexton III), destroy their relationship and the lives of two others, in the most brutal fashion.
Based on a true story, convicted murderers Lister and Nissen were still in prison as of 2013, after Lissen overturned his original evidence in 2007, and Lister demanded a retrial.
The language is crude, the sex is explicit, the violence is disturbing - this is not for the faint-hearted.
