Clear Plagiarism[edit]

The bulk of this article (the plot section) is lifted verbatim from this review on afterellen.com. Besides the issues of plagiarism the tone is completely wrong for an encyclopedia. I'm not sure how to remedy or escalate this. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.90.251.232 (talk) 03:30, 9 July 2009 (UTC)


The Plot Summary is no longer plagiarized and this section of the talk page is now obsolete Deird1234 (talk) 02:56, 23 February 2016 (UTC)

Plot[edit]

Hello. May someone who has seen the movie recently mind doing a Plot Summary? I have seen the film, but that was quite some time ago. Thank you. (Galaxycat (talk) 11:33, 17 August 2012 (UTC))


A promotion of alcohol and tobacco.

The film centres around a trial of some boys, accused of murdering the subject of the movie, Gwen. It has flashbacks to Gwen's life, starting as a small boy, looking to wear a dress, often encouraged by a sister or other girls, but opposed by her mother and others in, what appears to be an American/Latino community.

I so wish I could give more details, but the production is cheap, sensational and amateurish in a made for TV movie sort of way. Watching it is about as fun as pulling teeth.

I found it because of a comparison in a review of Boys Don't Cry. Sadly, that is the only real link there is between the two.

It might be filed under, How Not to make a Movie! if there is such a category. It tries. Many of the actors are clearly skilled, just miscast. Where it fails, and so becomes so difficult to follow, is the attempt by a school grade director, to make a movie, educating everyone and missing every clue.

Apologies if this isn't quite what is wanted here, but as someone who doesn't smoke or drink, I need both, after sitting through this drivel. 86.16.68.132 (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 17:28, 29 December 2013 (UTC)


I watched the film and added a plot summary accordingly. Deird1234 (talk) 02:40, 23 February 2016 (UTC)
