"Offbeat...brings a new flavor to the term odd couple." -Rita Kempley, Washington Post
Winner of the Grand Prix of the Americas Award for Best Film at the 1996 Montreal World Film Festival. Different For Girls is a different kind of contemporary love story. Starring Rupert Graves (The Madness of King George, Mrs. Dalloway) as Paul and Steven Mackintosh (London Kills Me, Memphis Belle) as Kim, this uniquely poignant and funny film focuses on the rekindling of a school relationship that has taken on a new twist.
When Paul last saw his old school friend he remembered a boy named Karl. Now, fifteen years later, he unexpectedly runs into him again, but now she's Kim, a post-operative transsexual. Worlds apart in their attitudes toward life, they no longer appear to have anything in common. However, the physical attraction they feel now is ironically as strong as their childhood friendship. Taking the best from their different lifestyles, she helps him to grow up and he helps her to have fun and somewhere along the way they accidentally fall in love.
