In "Boys Don't Cry", Lana(Chloe Sevigny) sees Brandon (Hillary Swank)'s clevage, but prefers the illusion that she's a boy. In "Solomon & Gaenor", Gaenor's scenes with Solomon would've worked better had she been in denial of his heritage, but the girl is clueless. I was certain of this when she appears at Solomon's door and tells him that he was hard to find, like a community concentrated with Jews was the last place she searched. Gaenor's kind of stupid, and her ravenous sexual appetite, could be a behavioral anachorism. Solomon is no rocket scientist himself. Unbridled passion breeds irrationality, but Ioann Gruffudd's fatalism seems more asinine than inevitable because Gaenor doesn't strike me as suicide material. Expand

Absolutely loved the movie. Unfortunately, had to watch it in Russian. But, I guess, it was actually a good thing, as I doubt I'd get the Welsh and the Yiddish :)
