This romantic/drama was actually really unique with it’s storyline, and is about a young transgender woman, named Ricky, who aspires to become a fashion designer living in New York. In the movie, you see her struggles with forming relationships with others as well as the relationship that she has with her male best friend, and the new relationship that she is forming with a female friend. I thought that this movie was actually very well-acted and brought new narratives into the mainstream. I would rate this movie 4.5/5 stars and recommend it to those who are interested in something new. @The_Reviewer of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

Great film. I especially liked that Eric Schaeffer decided to set it in small-town Kentucky and not feed viewers the usual scorn and contempt for rural, working-class White people that one often finds in US popular culture. Serendipitously, I am also currently reading Nadine Hubbs' excellent "Rednecks, Queers, and Country Music" which sheds light on how cultural elites frequently foment hate and division in this country in the name of tolerance.

The first film to get a top rating from me. Because of the title,I thought it might be a boring love story but it was captivating. It was so smooth and well made. I want more of Wolfe films.

This is a sweet film about two childhood friends, one of whom is a transgender girl.
I liked it.

“Boy Meets Girl” is a sweet coming-of-age story that doesn’t gloss over the complicated dynamics of friendship, attraction, and identity. This indie set in contemporary semi-rural Kentucky follows Ricky, a trans teenage girl living with her dad and younger brother, as she dreams of leaving her hometown to become a famous fashion designer. Ricky is a force of gravity for those around her, including her best friend Robby and local rich girl Francesca, both of whom fall hard for the beautiful, magnetic Ricky, but Ricky isn’t sure how she feels about them.

trans actor Michelle Hendley is great in her first film role. very touching early-teens video/you tube sequence.

I am trans and although this is not a perfect movie; it's leaps and bounds better then almost anything I have ever seen in film involving trans characters..
