Based on the true story of Thailand's famed transgender kickboxer, Beautiful Boxer is a poignant action drama that punches straight into the heart and mind of a boy who fights like a man so he can become a woman. Believing he's a girl trapped in a boy's body since childhood, Parinya Charoenphol (affectionately known as Nong Toom in Thailand) sets out to master the most masculine and lethal sport of Muay Thai (Thai boxing) to earn a living and to achieve his ultimate goal of total femininity. Touching, funny and packed with breathtaking Thai kickboxing sequences, Beautiful Boxer traces Nong Toom's childhood, teenage life as a traveling monk and grueling days in boxing camps.

The movie was based on a true story. Since I like movies that are based on documentary events that give feels, I would recommend this movie to anyone who wants to know more about the struggle of identity and the path of obtaining the gender.

I think the acting was good. I saw some of the behind the scenes; I think it was really hard to be a female while having a body of a male even walking is different between genders. For my personal opinion, I kind of wish the main actor was more feminine. I like the ending where I get to see the result of their struggle.

The music was good although I did not pay much attention to the music. I focused more the story because it helps me understand the man vs. social/peers conflicts.

I would give it a go again. It was definitely worth my time because towards the end, I learn values. I saw another perspective that kind of opens up my mind on the subject.
