Description Funny and provocative, Boy Meets Girl vividly captures the giddy excitement, sexual heat, and inherent heartache of "non-traditional" love in a small town. Ricky (Michelle Hendley) is a 21-year-old trans girl living in Kentucky. Her only real friend, straight-laced Robby, has been her trusty, totally platonic, confidant for over 15 years. Her day job slinging lattes is merely a stepping-stone toward her goal of being a famous New York designer. She's confident, cool, and completely ready for something new - and then her world is transformed when an enchanting debutante saunters into her life. Triggering fresh feelings and experiences, this unlikely connection conjures up intense questions about identity while uncovering ghosts from Ricky's past. Indie-film veteran Eric Schaeffer (My Life's in Turnaround, If Lucy Fell) builds a compelling, compassionate world that focuses on the emotions and messy challenges of complex people navigating complicated relationships. Schaeffer creates a thoroughly authentic small-town atmosphere, capturing the cozy and claustrophobic ambiance of a place where everyone knows your name - and your sexual partners.

    Such a pleasant surprise. Super fresh and sexy with some great twists and turns, but I think the ending was amazing. You hear "rom-com", and you think it'd be cheesy, but nope! Great watch.

    Is this movie available for purchase somewhere? I checked all the local dvd stores, and despite this movie being one of the best ever, I cannot find a single shop to rent or purchase it... :(

    This is by far one of my favorite films. I don't think I've ever seen anything so relatable. I cried, and I laughed. I love the actress who played Ricky. Definitely a recommended movie.

    Am I the only one who ships her with the girl than the guy? They have so much chemistry together; I am not going to lie. So that was a bit sad for me at the end. Anyway, I am glad to see Ricky happy. Such a likable character. Great movie.

    The actress who played Ricky is fantastic! I enjoyed this movie very much. I have always supported trans people but this really made me open my eyes that there's a majority of sexualities and at the end of the day, everyone is human regardless of their gender or sexuality

    At fancy, private Colby University, in the North Carolina hills, a drug overdose puts a senior near death. The school administration calls in the acting sheriff to conduct "a delicate and discrete investigation" - a whitewash. The more he digs, the more evidence he finds that the overdose may have been attempted murder. In flashbacks that parallel his investigation, we see Alicia, a scholarship girl worried about her grades, gradually pulled into the social life of three rich and amoral young...
