Knowing it's based on a true story makes it all the harder to watch. "Boys Don't Cry" raises an important issue, and makes damn sure you know who the real sick individuals are.

This movie is heartbreaking to watch, even if you know what to expect. I'm not sure which is more depressing, this movie or the real story that this movie is based on. Hilary Swank does such a fantastic job portraying Brandon that I always forget I'm actually watching her. It's hard not to walk away from this movie hating Peter Sarsgaard and Brandon Sexton III because of how well this movie is done. This movie accurately depicts small-town hatred and prejudice and the deadly affects it can have.
