Boys Don't Cry
It's not broccoli, it's celery.
Based on the true story of the last weeks in the life of Teena Brandon. She thought of herself as a boy, and so dressed and acted like one, going by the name of Brandon Teena. She hooks up with some poor whites, and falls in love with one of the girls, while at the same time fooling everyone into thinking she is a good-time guy. Eventually the pawpaw hit the fan and her deception was discovered, which had tragic consequences. The two female leads are both Oscar-nominated.|
