Hedwig — Movies On The Block
(6.15) Movies on the Block helps usher in Pride Weekend with the 2001 comedy/drama/musical “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” — an anatomically incorrect rock odyssey — written, directed by, and starring John Cameron Mitchell.
A transgender punk-rock girl from East Berlin tours the U.S. with her band as she tells her life story and follows the former lover/band-mate who stole her songs.
Stephen Holden wrote in 2001 for The New York Times that Mitchell “turns in a spectacular lead performance.”
Rated R. Running time: 1 hour, 35 minutes
Sunset 8:22pm, Thursday, June 15, Grant’s Block, 260 Westminster Street, (directions)
