Hedwig and the Angry Inch (2001)

Directed by
John Cameron Mitchell

Told in flashback via the songs, Hedwig was born in the GDR but from an early age, wanted to be a woman. Promise of marriage to a US army serviceman, providing he had a sex change operation, promised a way out but one botched operation later, leaving the 'angry inch', he/she's dumped alone in America. Hooking up with Tommy Gnosis, the two form a band but then Gnosis quits, stealing Hedwig's material and going on to stadium-filling fame while a bitter Hedwig is reduced to supper club gigs, shadowing Tommy's tour with a set of songs that tell the story of his/her life.
