This film is a breath of fresh air. Incredibly well-made--technically and emotionally. A very smart script, a soundtrack to die for and a cast of stars in the making. RUN, don't walk, to see this film in theatres NOW. And trust me, you'll be going back to see it again.

Poignant and joyous at the same time, I put off seeing it for several weeks. Immediately after seeing the movie I went home and bought the soundtrack from iTunes, that was how good it is.
I never cared overmuch for Hedwig so those comparisons left me ambivalent. It was only through the word of mouth, that I overcame my reticence in braving the Holiday crowds, and boy, am I glad I did.
I'm going to see it again this weekend. I'm already anxious for the DVD.
