Boy Meets Girl

Synopsis: 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.

And anyway, that girl -

I mean what more

could you want

from your first

girlfriend experience?

She's not a lesbian.

How do you know?

And even if she were, she would

not go for a girl like me.

Why not?

You know.

No, I really don't, why?

Oh come on,

now you're just bein' an idiot.

No, really, Ricky,

why couldn't she be into you?

- Because I'm not...

- Republican?

You know what I was gonna say.

Look, Ricky,

maybe she won't care.

I mean, there's only

one way to find out.

You know,

that really isn't something

I just go surprisin'

people with, out the blue.

Oh, really?

Hey, what about that, uh,

Halloween incident

when we were little.

See, now that was different.

He had it comin',

fucking pervert.

Hey, Cinderella,

trick or treat?




Thank God I was

there to protect you.

Yeah, tough guy.

I've never seen

someone run so fast.

Nah, it's true.

That douche bag

scared the shit outta me. But...

that was the only time I

ever ran from a fight for you.

Leave her alone.

That's a boy, not a girl.

You are a boy.

You are a boy.

Didn't your father just die?

Yeah, that's true.

You didn't really need me.

Anyone came after you

left in tears.

Well, I always appreciated

your gallant efforts.

Well, when you turned

sixteen somethin' happened.

I don't know, but you really

didn't need me after that.

Why you so into Ricky?

'Cuz he's gay.

Shut up!

Fine, whatever you're

into man, I'm just sayin'.

I'm not- I'm not gay.

I just like her. You -

it's nice to have a

conversation about more than

Pamela Anderson's tits

every once in awhile.



It's cool. It's cool.

If you wanna bring a dude

to the football game

who dresses

like a girl, then you -

Hey, guys.

- Hi.

- Hey.

Hey, Ricky.

- You look great.
