Kimberly Peirce, now wrapping up her remake of Brian De
Palma's thriller Carrie, first came
on the scene with this groundbreaking 1999 true story about a young woman who
preferred to be a man, much to the confusion and brutal outrage of a small Nebraska community. It won
Hilary Swank a Best Actress Oscar, and proved a landmark in gaining tolerance
for alternative sexual lifestyles.
