The Iron Ladies (2001)
Based on a true story, this spirited effort follows a team comprised of gay men and transvestites that competes in the Thai National Volleyball Championships in 1996. The film tells of how the squad's homophobic coach is replaced by a lesbian and the way the players react to straight opponents' objections of playing against them as their quest to become champions begins. It's like "Rocky"--with lots of rouge! With Shiriohana Hongsopon. 104 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: Thai Dolby Digital stereo; Subtitles: English; theatrical trailer. In Thai with English subtitles.
