Boys Don't Cry -- Film Screening

Uptown Campus


Woldenberg Art Center


Stone Auditorium

Free screening of the Academy Award winning film Boys Don't Cry which stars Hilary Swank, Chloë Sevigny, and Peter Saarsgard.  It is the story of young female-to-male transgender Brandon Teena (Hilary Swank) who leaves his hometown under threat when his ex-girlfriend's brother discovers that he's biologically female. Resettling in the small town of Falls City, Nebraska, Brandon falls for Lana (Chloë Sevigny), an aspiring singer, and begins to plan for their future together. But when her ex-convict friends, John (Peter Sarsgaard) and Tom (Brendan Sexton III), learn Brandon's secret, things change very quickly.
Christine Vachon is one of the producers of the film and will be speaking at Tulane the following day.
