Celebrating 32 years The Chicago LGBT International Film Festival, Reeling Film Festival begins on Thursday, September 18th at The Music Box Theatre, 3733 N. Southport Avenue with a screening of BOY MEETS GIRL, directed by Eric Schaeffer.
BOY MEETS GIRL stars Trans actress Michelle Hendley in her debut with this winning, touching romantic comedy. Hendley plays Ricky, a trans girl in small town Kentucky lamenting her uneventful love life to her best friend since childhood, Robby (Michael Welch), whose love life is shallow but plentiful. He playfully suggests she try dating a woman & mere moments later Francesca (Alexandra Turshen) walks into her life, leaving her flustered & wondering if she should keep a more open mind. Complications arise, of course, when Francesca reveals that she is engaged & that her family is not as welcoming of trans folks as she is. BOY MEETS GIRL may appear as a simple love story but it’s told well & it absolutely cannot be missed. Director Eric Schaeffer is set to attend the screening, along with trans actress Michelle Hendley. There will be a pre-screening reception at 5:30P prior to the 7:30P screening. Reeling32: The Chicago LGBT International Film Festival runs September 18th to 25th.
