Robert was born female and Lola was born male. Transgendered, they fall in love. Set in the backwoods of Georgia, Southern Comfort tells the real-life story of Robert Eads, a warm and gregarious cowboy who as a woman married and raised two sons, then transitioned to living as a man.
It’s a world of contradictions win which good old boys who drive pick-up trucks and shoot the breeze around the barbecue are also 21st century pioneers–courageously forging a new world for themselves, and for us.
Southern Comfort won the Grand Jury Prize at the 2001 Sundance Film Festival. Replaying now on the big screen, the film is a testament to how far the Trans movement has come in the last 14 years.
