An illuminating and compassionate look at the world of transgender identity, as seen through portraits of some of San Francisco's leading gender mixers. Whether by birth or by choice, sometimes with the assistance of hormones or surgical prostheses, we meet those who blur the lines of male and female.
The first feature film from 29-year-old director and highly acclaimed poet Lukas Moodysson, Show Me Love has been a tremendous success in Sweden. Not only was it Sweden's entry for this year's Academy Award as Best Foreign Language Film, it rivaled Titanic as Sweden's number one box office hit.
Gabriel, an aspiring writer of Broadway musicals, meets Mark, a muscled stripper, who picks him up on the subway. They spend the night trying to find somewhere to be alone... forced to contend with Gabriel's selfish roommate, his irritating best friend, and a vicious, jealous drag queen in a gay dance club. The sun rises on a promising new relationship.
