My favorite is nevertheless Terence Stamp
(yes, I do mean HIM!) as the transsexual Bernadette.Dignity, a great sense of humor, depth of experience and hurt, but strong come mind seeing his
acting - absolutely believable.His
love story with a mechanic is wonderfully touching! and above all: great songs and music.
as the transexual Bernadette and Hugo Weaving, (Agent Smith - Matrix & Elrond - Lord of the Rings), are also both excellent!You don't have to be "that way inclined" to enjoy this movie.
Finally Ralph/Bernadette (Terence Stamp) is trying to cope with losing a husband she
worked to hard to snare when she
needs the break and heads west with Tick and Felicia
The three are: aging transsexual Bernadette (Terence Stamp), youngish occasional bisexual Tick or Mitzi (Hugo Weaving) and gay-all-the way Adam or Felicia (Guy Pearce), the youngest.
