I used it as an extra text in year 12, with our topic being "belonging" and was told that a story about a sex change wasn't complex enough. My teacher hadn't seen the movie and my essay couldn't do the story justice, I guess.
Anyway, if you haven't seen it- do. It's fab. So, in the spirit of this fabulous movie, here is one of my favourite scenes/songs from it.
I could swear by your expression
that the pain down in your soul
was the same
as the one down in mine.
That's the pain
that cuts a straight line down through the heart.
We called it love.
You may notice I've mentioned this song before in a previous post because it was the inspiration for one of my short stories.
