Life is good for Brandon, now that he is one of the guys and dating hometown beauty Lana (Chloë Sevigny). No one in the town knows that Brandon Teena was actually born a woman named Teena Brandon. When his best friends make this discovery, Brandon's life is ripped apart. Swank won the Oscar, Golden Globe, Independent Spirit, LA Film Critics, and NY Film Critics awards for Best Actress.
