"The Iron Ladies"
Directed by Yongyoot Thongkongtoon
Based on a true story, this crowd-pleasing
feature follows a team of gay, transvestite and transsexual volleyball
players as they compete for a national championship in Thailand. Their
battles extend off the field as well, where they have to stand up against
discrimination within the sporting world. The broad comedy and feel-good
vibe of this film made it the second highest-grossing movie in Thai cinema
history. Winner of the Audience Awards at the New York and San Francisco
Lesbian & Gay Film Festivals. Thai with English subtitles. 104 minutes.
