This Week's Film: Beautiful Boxer
Cuisine: Thai

Synopsis: Muay Thai kickboxer by profession, and transvestite outside the ring, Parinya Charoenphol suffers the hard knocks of his sport to pay for sex change surgery. Based on the real life story of Charoenphol, written and directed by Ekachai Uekrongtham, this critically acclaimed film stars Asanee Suwan in the title role.

Join me throughout the week on Chopstick Cinema for a closer look at the food and the film. My film review will be posted at the end of the week, along with my Thai recipe.
