Chloë Sevigny ... Lana Tisdel
Based on actual events. Brandon Teena is the popular new guy in a tiny Nebraska town. He hangs out with the guys, drinking, cussing, and bumper surfing, and he charms the young women, who've never met a more sensitive and considerate young man. Life is good for Brandon, now that he's one of the guys and dating hometown beauty Lana. However, he's forgotten to mention one important detail. It's not that he's wanted in another town for GTA and other assorted crimes, but that Brandon Teena was actually born a woman named Teena Brandon. When his best friends make this discovery, Brandon's life is ripped apart.
Dealing with such a controversial subject matter, Boy's Don't Cry could have told the story of Brandon Teena simply or exploitively. But with excellent direction, outstanding performances (particularly from Swank and Sevigny) the movie not only invokes a strong emotional response from its audience, but also brings up important issues of gender politics and homophobia that are rarely dealt with so honestly and candidly. It is a shame that its lack of a rating will keep it from playing in certain areas; it is a great directorial debut, and one of the most important films of 1999, if not the decade.
