Poppy Goes To Hollywood

Essential Opinion: Poppy Goes To Hollywood (ប៉ុបពីទៅហូលីវ៉ូត)

Mixing humor with music, Poppy Goes To Hollywood is an excellently choreographed comedy about the issues transgendered people face every day in third-world countries and it is the first LGBT-themed film in Cambodia (and one that garnered a majorly positive reaction, at that!). If you’re prepared for stoic, stodgy movie about social injustice then you will be disappointed. This is as light-hearted as one can get when discussing far-reaching matters like prejudice, bigotry and crime. But it works – Visal’s film is rich, engaging, refreshing and a genuine pleasure to watch.
