Boy meets girl trailer
Boy Meets Girl is a 2014 American romance film directed by Eric Schaeffer. It stars Michelle Hendley as a transgender woman living in a small town in Kentucky, looking for love.
21-year old Ricky (Michelle Hendley) is a transgender woman living in a small town in Kentucky with big dreams to move to New York and attend a school of fashion design. Ricky is working as a barista and spends most of her time hanging out with her only friend Robby (Michael Welch) who has been by her side for the past 15 years. One day while Ricky is at work, a woman from town named Francesca walks in, a friendship unexpectedly blossoms, which then turns into an affair.
Gary Goldstein of the Los Angeles Times gave it a favourable review, calling it a "lovely story, one which brims with credible, enormously heartfelt emotion". The Washington Post gave it two stars out of four, "“Boy Meets Girl” comes across not just as an emotional story, but also an earnestly instructive one."
