 Description:

Boys like her is an adrenaline-rush road movie of young queer life and gender transformation. First stop, the Canada-U.S. border, four young queers in a borrowed car pulled over, notebooks, make-up, clothes and violin flung out on the concrete. The car is checked for drugs, contraband, fruit – and declared clean. The four in a borrowed car are smuggling dangerous goods. But what they’re smuggling can’t be sniffed out, pawed through, or seized. They’re smuggling stories, poetry, scripts; words they’ve sold in performance on-stage. Felons, all of them, they’ve memorized their act and now are speeding away from the border, smiling, self-satisfied and definitely up to no good. Join Anna, Ivan, Zoe and Lyndell as they evade customs, tell their stories, forget underwear, break hearts and come clean. Surrender yourself to the brash fun of Zoe’s Amsterdam “sideshow”, to the darling day when Ivan first sheds her bikini top, to the fearless audacity of Anna’s superhero adventure, and the soulfol guiding spirit of Lyndell’s violin, Experience the world and truth of Taste This, where stories have no hard and fast boundaries, where gender and genre are malleable and where transgression is often the way to the most delightful transformations.
