Adapted from the hit off-Broadway musical of the same name,
Hedwig and the Angry Inch is the tale of an "internationally
ignored" rock & roll singer who hails from Communist Berlin
and who dreams of becoming an American sensation. Hedwig (John
Cameron Mitchell), born a boy named Hansel, is raised by a single
mother (Alberta Watson) who wishes to see her son do better
than his poverty-stricken family. Some years later, Hansel is
attracted to a good-looking American G.I., who promises a better
life overseas for young Hansel, under one condition: that he
undergo a sex-change operation to become a fully functional
female whom he can then marry. The operation is seriously botched,
leaving the now-renamed Hedwig with an "angry inch" only to
be stranded in a dingy Kansas trailer park on the day the Berlin
Wall comes tumbling down. Hedwig then supports herself through
a series of ill-fated lounge gigs and side jobs, meeting up
with 16-year-old Tommy Gnosis (Michael Pitt), a religious type
who befriends her and later steals her songs and becomes the
rock star Hedwig always dreamed of being. Undeterred, Hedwig
continues to perform in the shadow of Tommy's sold-out stadium
tour, attempting to make herself whole in spirit, if not physically.
The film features several songs by composer Stephen Trask, who
also appears as a member of Hedwig's disinterested rock band;
Miriam Shor portrays Hedwig's newfound love and backup singer.
