  • "Adapted from the off-Broadway musical hit, "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" presents a drama queen getting not only what she needs, but also what she wants: love, unfettered and unconditional. Hedwig, a surgically botched transsexual from East Germany, travels the States with his band, playing a string of Red Lobster-type restaurants to audiences rendered incredulous by his boyish brand of girl glam; he reveals his story in flashbacks between musical numbers. For Hedwig, who exists in an indeterminate but politically charged space between freedom and frustration, life is about looking for her personal dividing wall - to smash it into ruin."@en

"A transexual punk rock girl from East Berlin tours the US with her rock band as she tells her life story and follows the ex-boyfriend/bandmate who stole her songs. ... Hedwig, born a boy named Hansel in East Berlin, fell in love with an American G.I. and underwent a sex-change operation in order to marry him and flee to the West. Unfortunately, nothing worked out quite as it was supposed to; years later, Hedwig is leading her rock band on a tour of the U.S., telling her life story through a series of concerts at Bilgewater Inn seafood restaurants. Her tour dates coincide with those of arena-rock star Tommy Gnosis, a wide-eyed boy who once loved Hedwig... but then left with all her songs ... We meet Hedwig working with her band in a local restaurant near the salad bar as she exclaims that she's the internationally ignored rock singer who has traveled from Communist Berlin. [She is] managed by the singular person who applauds during their musical sets, Phyllis Stein, ... the band manager that keeps the family together. As we travel with the band, we travel into Hedwig's own memories, as [she shares] the stories of how [she] was a young boy named Hansel, raised by a single mother in Germany; then several years later, [she] is attracted to an American GI sergeant who agrees to marry Hansel and take him to America if he follows through with a sex change operation in order to be come a complete woman. When the operation fails, leaving Hedwig with [an] angry inch, [her] GI husband abandons [her] in Kansas and Hedwig is left to fend for [herself] by doing a series of side gigs. When she meets young Tommy Gnosis, the two bond, until Tommy steals Hedwig's songs and [becomes] a huge rock star, leaving Hedwig pathetically playing in the shadows. As Hedwig performs we learn how [her] ultimate desire is to become a whole person by meeting [her] other half, someone [she] can bond with in every way"--Internet movie database, as viewed on May 28, 2008."@en
