“He's My Girl” is a delightful romp about Simon, a talented klezmer musician.
He falls for Naim, an Arab transsexual, but can't bring himself to
commit to a relationship. To get closer, Naim poses as an aide and is
hired to take care of Simon's ailing and unsuspecting mother. The plot
becomes even more entangled when Simon's ex-wife and the son he's
never met return to Paris. (Adult content)
Preceded by “Sidney Turtlebaum”Sidney (a stellar performance by Sir Derek Jacobi) is a lonely gay man
who entertains himself by snitching from grieving strangers at shivas all
the while pretending to be a distant relation. 18 minutes.
