"Boys Don't Cry" Movie

Hi all. I've tentatively decided to do my film class analysis paper (8 pages, double-spaced) on "Boys Don't Cry".

I'm in the brainstorming phase. If you've seen the movie, and would be willing to share your impressions of the movie in as specific terms as possible, please comment.

To clarify: I'm not looking at a plot synopsis. I've seen the movie two times and will probably watch it several more times before turning in the paper.

What I'm really interested in is perspectives of the film from people who have more immediate experienc with the topic, like you've tried to pass as another gender or know someone who has...I think impressions of the film from viewers with first or second-hand experience will help jolt my brain so a better thesis statement gets developed. I know this is kind of vague, but basically, any and all comments welcome even if you don't have immediate experience, just a virtual conversation of sorts.

And if you haven't seen the movie...I definitely recommend it.
