Audience Reviews for A Girl like Me: The Gwen Araujo Story

This movie made me cry. I felt like I actually knew her. How people could do something so hurtful...I will never understand. She was so beautiful...it's just not fair.

Great movie! I've seen this on the Lifetime Channel the first time, and it was a deeply touching story about a transgendered teen. "Acceptance", such a simple word but action is so difficult. If only it weren't so. Mercedes Ruehl is magnificent.
