Based on the novel by Monica Jay, this film is the funniest plea for tolerance of transvestites ever made. Gerald is a smart, young, high-flying American banker. Everything is great until his wife finds another woman’s underwear in their bedroom and throws him out. He finds lodgings with Monica, a recently divorced 50-year-old housewife, who is smitten with Gerald. But after their first night of love, Gerald avoids her. Monica feels used and betrayed - until Gerald confesses his secret: he loves to dress up as a woman. Monica learns to accept and eventually support Gerald-ine, Gerald’s alter ego and when he gets arrested, it is up to Gerald-ine and Monica to vindicate him and get back his self-respect.
