Very nice true story - Beautiful Boxer review by TS

Spoiler Alert
23/04/2015

This is a nice film which shows some of the pressures on people who are Trans in Thailand. In places the acting is not natural, and the story does seem to brush over quickly on what I would imagine were some quite important moments in Nong Tooms life, which is a shame but as there is a lot to cover it must have been difficult to work out which bits to focus on.

I am glad I watched this, there were some cute guys, some lovely moments and all in all I learnt something about the pressures boxers go through, but also the pressures Trans people go through.
