Just Like a Woman is a 1992 British comedy-drama film directed by Christopher Monger starring Julie Walters, Adrian Pasdar, and Paul Freeman. The film is based on the novel Geraldine, For the Love of a Transvestite by Monica Jay, and is one of the few "cross-dressing" films in which the hero is actually a transvestite, unlike Some Like it Hot, Tootsie, Mrs. Doubtfire, and others in which the cross-dresser has an ulterior motive.

Plot[edit]

Gerald Tilson, a finance executive, finds himself thrown out by his wife when she discovers women's underwear in their flat; in fact the clothes belong to him. He takes lodgings with Monica, who gradually discovers his alter ego, "Geraldine". A subplot deals with his boss' plan to defraud their Japanese clients, and how the couple thwart it.

Cast[edit]

Production[edit]

The film's title is taken from the song "Just Like a Woman" by Bob Dylan.
