Are you missing your proverbial other half? Does Aristophanes have a point? Come make a cinematic soulmate out of writer-director John Cameron Mitchell’s HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH!

Based on Mitchell and Stephen Trask’s stage musical of the same name, Hedwig and the Angry Inch is a 2001 musical-comedy-drama that is at once electrifying and deeply poignant. Born a boy named Hansel in Communist East Berlin, Hedwig (played as an adult by Mitchell himself) has dreams of true love and becoming a big American rock star. A comely American GI promises love and liberation, but there’s a catch – in order to marry and emigrate to the United States, Hedwig must “leave a little something behind.” A botched operation and a stubborn pile of flesh renders Hedwig a lonely rose in the sunflower state. Alone with her dreams, Hedwig perfects her look and formulates the perfect band – The Angry Inch. But, while supporting herself with humdrum gigs, Hedwig meets a Christian lad who steals more than her heart, leading her yin on an arduous journey to make peace with her yang.

A musical that delivers surprisingly impactful spiritual and existential observations, Hedwig and the Angry Inch was the sensation of the 2001 Sundance Film Festival, taking home both the Best Director and Audience Award prizes before winning over 25 additional international awards, and landing Mitchell a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor.

“Flamboyant, irreverent, naughty – and oddly, profoundly moving.” – Susan Stark, Detroit News

“Hedwig makes for an unforgettable heroine, the perfect center to this wonderfully odd, vivid and dynamic movie.” – Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald
