- Uplifting story
- Michelle Hendley’s inexperience acting is noticable on occasion
- The ending wraps everything in a nice bow
Review: It’s not often you get a transgender feature film, let alone a well made one. Boy Meets Girl is a very familiar story told in a modern way, with genuine performances and people you grow to care about. Eric Schaeffer does a good job fleshing out all the characters and making them all humane.
