The profoundly sensitive, often wryly funny look at friendship, romance, sexual attraction and gender identity carries themes and dynamics that feel as timeless as they do up-to-the-minute.
Often, it feels conspicuously educational.
Boy Meets Girl is a funny and touching comedy/drama boasting a superlative debut performance by Michelle Hendley.
The film's potentially most affecting moments are too often smothered by the hackneyed characters and setups that surround them.
Under the guise of a conventional romantic comedy, this independent feature explores gender politics and sex-positive themes with depth and passion.
Boy Meets Girl feels fresh and direct even if it's full of explanations that should have happened years earlier.
I don't think I've ever seen a smarter, warmer, more honest depiction of human sexuality than this roundrobin of emotion and attraction. I love this movie.
A formidable young cast bring potent emotional power to Boy Meets Girl, a rom-com with a refreshing premise that too often settles for formula.
Everyone loves Ricky
Boy Meets Girl takes its cue from the laid-back drawl of Michelle Hendley, whose unaffected performance provides a baseline of truth and humor.
This transgender tale is one near-constant and winning surprise.
With a couple of big twists on the romantic-comedy genre, this gorgeous little film is almost impossible to resist. And that's precisely the point.
Great movie, really liked it. The girl is so pretty as well, would really not pick her as transgendered aside from her voice.
Really a sweet story about how you can fall in love with a person and not a gender and to follow your dreams.
A superb look at the treatment of transgenders in modern day society. A superb coming of age drama also that empowers you to live without fears despite what those around you think or feel. Heartwarming and heartbreaking.
"Boy Meets Girl" starts with Ricky(Michelle Hendley) and Robby(Michael Welch) debating their respective lack of luck with the opposite sex at her place of work. Enter Francesca(Alexandra Turshen) who is saving herself for marriage with her fiancé David(Michael Galante). She is also much more interested in Ricky than in Robby. That does not change at the local watering hole when Ricky texts her that she is in fact transgendered which Francesca does not seem to mind in the least.
While maybe a little too PSA-y for its own good(although considering the amount of ignorance in this country...), "Boy Meets Girl" is still a sexy, funny and sweet romantic comedy about finding yourself in a small town.(Luckily, for Ricky, she figured who she was at a very young age.) And as uneven and rough as the movie can be in spots, it also has some great scenes like perhaps the best flashing scene ever and when Robby tries to explain the female facts of life to Ricky.
