Description Karl Foyle and Paul Prentice were best mates at school in the Seventies. But when they meet again in present-day London things are definitely not the same. Karl is now Kim, a transsexual, and she has no desire to stir up the past while she's busy forging a neat and orderly new life. Prentice, on the other hand, has charm but is a social disaster stuck in a dead-end job. His main talent is for getting them both into trouble. Amid the squabbles, they start to fall in love. One night, Kim invites Prentice to a romantic dinner at her flat. Prentice, finding the seduction unexpectedly effective, freaks out. He proceeds to make a public display of both of them and winds up in court. Humiliated and angry, Kim runs away. Only she can save Prentice now, but will true love triumph for a new made woman and an aging punk?

    First rented this movie in 1999 from our library here in Berlin and was so in awe of Mackintosh's acting. What a beautiful story of love and friendship. :-) I had almost forgotten how much I liked "Different for Girls" when I accidently stumbled across it here on YouTube. Thank you so much for uploading it. It brought back the sweetest memories and is still relevant after 20+ years. <3

    Who wouldn't want to wake up to a sleepy Rupert Graves in their bed? Love this movie. It's a really lovely story. And it's so frustrating try every that he can't keep his hands to himself. Or his cheekiness. Or really anything at all.
