Iron Ladies, The

Every now and then a comedy comes along with a heart so big and a cast of characters so wonderfully bizarre that you cannot help but fall in love with it. The Iron Ladies is one of those films. Based on a true story, it describes the inexorable march of a volleyball team composed mostly of transsexuals, transvestites and some rather effeminate gay guys to the Thai male national championship in 1966. Ultimately a spirited and gleeful plea for tolerance, The Iron Ladies is a delight on every level.
