Boy Meets Girl is a poignant, sexy, romantic coming of age comedy about three twenty year-olds living in Kentucky. Robby (Michael Welch, Twilight) and his best friend since childhood, Ricky, a gorgeous transgender girl, have never dated. Lamenting the lack of eligible bachelors, Ricky considers dating a girl. In walks Francesca, a beautiful young debutante waiting for her Marine fiancé to return from the war. Ricky and Francesca strike up a friendship, and maybe a little more, which forces Robby to face his true feelings for Ricky.

To illustrate how highly I regard BMG, just let me say that I streamed it yesterday and immediately after, purchased a digital copy of the film. Today, I watched the film twice in back-to-back viewings and was just as powerfully moved on the third viewing as I was on the first. It is simply the best portrayal of a Transwoman and some of the thornier social and emotional issues we face that I've yet seen. Thankfully there was virtually no violence in this film, and while sexual matters were discussed quite frankly among the characters using some pretty salty language, there were no gratuitous sex scenes in the film and only one brief but necessary scene with frontal nudity.
The cast, none of whom I have seen before because I don't watch TV, were outstanding with Michael Welch's and, of course, Michelle Hendley's performances being wonderfully real and compelling, were totally convincing in their portrayals and the film would not have succeeded quite so nicely without them. When I learned that Michelle Hendley is a Transwoman and not another Felicity Huffmanesque example of poor casting, my appreciation for this film only skyrocketed. Not only is she drop-dead gorgeous - I would sacrifice my Kindle HDX 7 by fire to be so beautiful! - she's a great actress and a courageous young woman. Well done indeed, Younger Sister!
All-in-all, this was a great flick with comedic bits, profound bits, romance, laughter and a happy ending, despite the fact that it made me weep more than once. I wish more Trans-related films were as uplifting and honest as this one.
After watching the film, I was surprised to learn that Ricky is a true transgender who the director found, thanks to you tube, as Michelle Hendley (Ricky) was documenting the entire transformation from M to F. Without any acting experience, Michelle jumped on board. I thought Michelle did a remarkable job! There are people in Hollywood with several movies yet I cringe when they come on screen due to an obvious inability to act - not so with Michelle - Michelle is a natural.
