An anatomically incorrect rock odyssey.
This is the story of hedwig, an ambitious glam-rocker who comes to america determined to find fame, fortune and his other half.

"Visionary rock firepower! Hedwig may just reinvent the rock musical!  Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"Not to be missed. Hedwig is hysterically funny!  Edward Jay Epstein, The Wall Street Journal
"Fascinating!  Roger Ebert, Ebert & Roeper At The Movies
"Better than Rocky Horror Picture Show. So deliriously entertaining that you feel like the movie musical has finally been reinvented!  Eleanor Ringel Gillespie, Atlanta Journal Constitution

Editor's Note
John Cameron Mitchell is the creator of the off-Broadway hit HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH, which he and composer-lyricist Stephen Trask have transformed into a funny, dramatic, and curiously poignant self-described "post-punk neo-glam musical" film, with extra songs and a new instrumental score. Hedwig (played by Mitchell) was born as Hansel in East Berlin. In his twenties, Hansel agrees to undergo a sex change in order to marry a U.S. soldier (Maurice Dean Wint) and escape to America. Unfortunately, the procedure fails, and Hedwig is left with nothing but a sexless "angry inch" between her legs. After being abandoned in a Kansas trailer park by her husband, Hedwig decides to make the most of her situation: She develops a taste for outrageous wigs and costumes, forms a band, and becomes a singer. Hedwig soon meets and falls in love with 17-year-old Tommy (Michael Pitt), who also harbors rock star aspirations, and makes him her musical protégé. But Tommy is the one who ends up stealing the superstardom that Hedwig worked for, after stealing Hedwig's songs and claiming them as his own. In order to expose him as a fraud, she embarks on a tour of strip mall restaurants, telling her story to the audience while trailing Tommy on his own tour across America.

Professional Reviews

Movieline's Hollywood Life
"...HEDWIG is an exhilarating reinvention of the movie musical....Mitchell plays with the medium, blending flashbacks, fantasies, even bits of clever animation into a brilliantly stylized whole..." 08/01/2001 p.36-8

New York Times
"...[A] clever, funny, wildly innovative film tricked out with surreal pop embellishments and Day-Glo colors..." 07/20/2001 p.E1

USA Today
"...[The story] is wildly witty, but also inventive, audacious and poignant....HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH brings the rock musical to a crescendo..." 07/20/2001 p.4E

Film Comment
"...A mossy, semi-tragic fun house with a drunken camera trying not to pass out....As one tune explains, HEDWIG is about the origin of love....The heartbreak is for real..." 07/01/2001 p.76-7

Entertainment Weekly
"...Love, fame, self-acceptance, fabulous wigs -- HEDWIG achieves everything MOULIN ROUGE aspires to with far less effort..." 07/27/2001 p.45

Rolling Stone
"...[Mitchell] is a live wire who knows how to spark a fun party....HEDWIG is rich in imagination and daring..." 08/02/2001 p.69-70

Washington Post 9 of 10
...more than sophomoric drag-vamping. It's "Rocky Horror" with a more inventive brain. With such material as Hedwig's semi-serious song, "The Origin Of Love," featuring animated humans with double heads and Zeus cutting people in half with lightning-shaped scissors, the film's not only funny and weird, it's oddly poignant. I miss Hedwig already... - Desson Howe

The New York Times 9 of 10
One way of looking at this clever, funny, wildly innovative film tricked out with surreal pop embellishments and Day-Glo colors is to see it as the kind of movie David Bowie might have made had he pushed his early '70s gender-bending persona to its logical limit. - Stephen Holden
