This movie really hit home to me. One of my best friends is going through a sex change right now. And I pray that nothing like this will ever happen to him!
i tha that this movie was so sad it made me think about how much people would use the word for what some people are i do not think its right to say that word.its like saying stuff about black ,white,and mexican people. H.swank did a great job.this is my favorit movie.and god bless tenna brandon/brandon tenna.
I THOUGHT IT WAS THE BEST MOVIE I HAVE SEEN, I MISSED THE FIRST 10 MINS BUT THAT DIDNT MATTER. I COULDNT SLEEP AFTER WATCHING. ITS BEEN 2 DAYS SINCE I SAW THE FILM AND I CANT STOP THINKING ABOUT IT. EXCELLENT FILM, I WOULD RECOMMEND SEEING IT. THE ACTING WAS SUPERB AND HILARY SWANK DESERVED HER AWARD FOR HER PORTRAYAL AS BRANDON TEENA.
I thought Boys Don`t Cry is an amazing movie because it takes you tos how you what girls//guys go through, and you know what if someone is not comfortable in their body then so be it, you dont have to murder them for it! I think that those two guys were screw ups for killing someone who did`t deserve to die at such a young age. i think it would have been way different if Lana didn`t like him//her and wouldn`t leave her alone but that wasn`t the case!
i think its amazing movie. maybe its not about us but its about honesty, truth and love. and it can be `boom` coz it ever happened in this world. i am really sad for brandon, of course. she is do something wrong, but nabody can kill her for that.
This movie is very moving and I know, not think, that a lot of people will think hard about it!
I think it is a very moving movie and that it just shows how judgement people can be of others and the way they want to live their life and how they wnt to be.
i really love that movie by hilary swank..it is one of her best movie i`ve ever wactched..it was so amazing!!a perfect story for all who knows how to love!!
its a beautifal movie.i want him home
This movie can change peoples lives, I think.

Boys Dont Cry...excelent movie...I hope people really understand how sick what they think Normal really is. My heart goes out to the family of Teena Brandon. I am a 48 year old black man
I absolutely loved Boys Don`t Cry! hilary swank is one of my favorite actresses and she was incrediable in this movie, its was depressing and makes you take a second look on everything. It proves what can happen if you judge people and to act before you think.I recomend it to everyone.
I watched the movie as a college assignment without knowing what the story was. I was amazed at the job H. Swank did. I was saddened by the fact it was a true story. I would recommend this to anyone.
this film was the best i`ve ever seen! actress and actors were acting very brilliant.i really like this film;)
One of the best films Ive ever seen,, Hilary Swank very good acting! The story is very good but also sad..It made me cry cuz youre in the person Teena Brandon.. You feel how she feel. Its very good!
I thought that boys don`t cry was very sad not at first put as it got going it really made me want to cry. I must say very well done to H. Swank. I thought she acted the film very well it is just really sad that it was based on brandon teenas life and what she must have gone through. At the end of the day brandon teena was human and she did have feelings just like the rest of us. It is a real shame that brandon teena is no longer alive today.Rest in peace brandon teena. Lots of love LOUISE From England. UK
this is a good film. but the thing is it was not published as it should have been. few people know it, so its in hiden cinemas.
H.Swank U r amazing actress. I can not help grieveing for such a this fate . it really touchs me , such a this movie i ve" never seen ......& shame on her murderers.....love U miss swank
i thoght it was a very sad movie and (dont tell anyone) i cried.
absolutly the most fantastic film of the nineties. i think close friends and family need not to be so offended. try not to look at the film as what happened and what didnt and look at the message it is trying to portray. to me this film says that u should try and be who u want to be regarless of what others think. also that we shouldn`t be so ignorant of the narrowmindedness that goes on in the world. be who you are and live your life as you was. we should all learn from this and hope that our world has moved on a little bit.
I thought it was the best film that hilary swank has done i think that she deserved that award... i give her full credit and all the people that played in that movie i cant say how much it means too all those transgender people out there that need that...
Incredibly sensitive portrayal by Hilary Swank of a socially alienated and marginalized incomplete transsexual. Sound track a little difficult to follow: great character development; also great performance by Chloe Sevigny.
Honestly it was one of the most heart felt movies i`ve seen. It made me think about how some people have little respect for each other especially those who chose to live differently. We are not here to judge but to help one another. I think Brandon was very brave to live as he felt.
This movie is an interesting and original story,is romantic but at the same time is dramatic with a really sad ending. Is a perfect job. All the characters were amaizing.I have watched it a lot of times and i still like it. Exellent!!!
This was an awesome move that really portrayed Brandon`s story
awesome performance by swank
loved this movie is very romantic
this film is amazing, truly
I think the movie was romantic and sad (ending), it shows what people would do for love and it tells alot of people to not treat anbody different.
I think that.....is a very special film for me,because I`m a lesbian girl and my personality is very similar that the girl to the film.
yes, a very well poignant,well acted movie.Althougth through its sad ending and my heartfelt tears of pity the film had a cathartic effect on me so it wasnt so depressing after all.One of the most important themes in the movie was the expressions of intolerance for somebodys differences.the fact is, that nobody `deserves` to be hurt and boys dont cry attempts to express that.Did anybody else notice how many crosses and other repeated expressions of religion lana and pretty much all characters had?i thought it was very paradoxical and alittle bit mocking of religion because realigion is there to be a guide on HOW to be toleant and kind... yet
loved it to death
Great Talents.. extremely sad ending [horrifies me to think it actually happened!]..beaituful moments, thought provoking...leaves a lasting impression...all in one : brilliant Movie.Soemthing that comes your way once in a good long time....very touchin.
is realy a sad movie......i hate the ending....bot is realy a good show..
Well crafted, beautifully acted movie. Extremely depressing, though. Dont` watch it last thing at night. After we finished it at 11:30pm, we were too depressed and felt we needed somthing a little ligther to pick us up. (So we threw Grease into the VCR). Boys dont` cry is still a must see. Hillary Swank`s acting is mind-blowing, and Chloe Sevigny deservedly got the Best Supporting Actress nomination. Rent it (perhaps along with Shrek)
Boys Dont Cry is a very moving story about love and learning to accept the differences of others. I have watched it many times and it always makes me cry. This is a fabulous masterpiece with a tragic ending.
well acted, but very depressing.
Hilary Swank is one of my fav actresses and this movie proves why. i loved it.
An amazing movie that introduces transgenderism to mainstream audience and has a very accurate portrayal of what transgenderism is.
BRILLANT SAD AND MADE ME THINK WHAT THIS MODERN WORLD THINKS ABOUT TODAYS SEXUALITY.
Shows what our world has come to and what we have to overcome to be accepted for who we are.
i liked it!!!but not the end it was sad!!
Although, terribly sad a tale....indeed, was this movie!It was remarkable, that the actual victim, Teena Branden, could be carried out so lovingly, and thoughtfully!!I as a viewer , can only say Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!.....for having the insight and strength to tell the world , what can happen , in the pit of ignorance!What people need to remember, when they casually judge others, for being "different"!!!.........Again Thank You All!!!A superb Job!
one of the best movies ever made - Hilary Swank was amazing!!!
