Movie Info

Documentary filmmaker Shelly Prevost explores public attitudes towards gender blur by examining the murder of a transgendered California man who was brutally murdered when four men and one woman discovered his true sexual orientation. Since the age of fourteen, Eddie had been cross-dressing and going by the name of "Gwen." Forcibly examined by a suspicious woman while partying one night at a Newark, California residence, "Gwen" was subsequently bludgeoned to death by four male assailants who, while seeking manslaughter charges in court, cited the "heat of passion" as the motivating factor in their deadly assault. Though the first court session was a mistrial, the murderous quartet was convicted in a second trial under the caveat of "sexual deception as provocation." ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Like an episode of Law and Order, the film lays out the facts of the case, allows us to get to know many of the principal characters and packs an emotional wallop.
