Groundbreaking almost doesn’t begin to describe the impact of this film that won Hilary Swank her Best Actress Oscar, BOYS DON’T CRY tells the gutwrenching true story of Brandon Teena, a transgender man who, despite relocating to a new town, has his biological identity exposed and faces a tragic fate.

“Scorches the screen like a prairie fire.” – J. Hoberman, Village Voice

“Driven by performances of such luminous humanity that they break your heart.” – Stephen Hunter, Washington Post

Dear Brattle Friends,

You guys continue to humble and amaze us with your outpouring of support!

Thanks to you, we have now raised more than $35,000 from over 400 individual donors!

Thank you for helping to keep our staff paid and The Brattle alive during this scary time.

I hope that you are all feeling healthy.

As we remain closed, our preliminary goal is to raise four weeks of operating support, or $65,000, to ensure we can continue to pay all of our staff, and other overhead through April 7. As things develop, our timeline for being closed and fundraising goal may change, but our ultimate goal of re-opening The Brattle stays firm.

With your help, this goal will become a reality.

Stay healthy,

Ivy, Ned & The Brattle Theatre Team
