Read our Essential Opinion on The Crying Game

Winner of “BEST WRITING”, “BEST PICTURE” and “BEST ACTOR IN A LEADING ROLE” at the Academy Awards and 25 international film festival awards including “BEST ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE”, “ASACP AWARD”, “BEST FOREGIN FILM”, “BEST SCREENPLAY” and “BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS”

“This offbeat emotional thriller is an unusually satisfying film, intricately constructed, surely directed and splendidly acted. .”
   Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

“By the time The Crying Game is over, you'll never look at beauty in quite the same way.”
Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly

“One of a very few films that wants to do something unexpected and challenging, and succeeds even beyond its ambitions. See this film. Then shut up about it.”
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

We Say:
“Remarkably in his first feature film Jaye Davidson’s Academy Awards nominated role of transgendered Dil was the first film in 30 years to truly shock audiences since Anthony Perkins cross-dressing slasher character Norma / Norman Bates. Film and television portrayal of transgendered roles following The Crying Game, have been less about shock and more about acceptance. Thankfully director Neil Jordan left the marketing gimmick to the distributors, and gave the audience a remarkable emotional thriller.”
   Alexander Ryll, Gay Essential
