|Flawless (1999 / English / USA)|
When the once highly decorated homophobic police officer Walter Koontz (Robert De Niro) suffers a stroke while attempting to aid a neighbor, an unorthodox form of therapy is prescribed to help him overcome a resulting speech impediment.
The suggested therapy becomes even more unorthodox when Walter asks his neighbor, Rusty (Philip Seymour Hoffman), a flamboyant drag queen with musical talent, also a pre-op transgenderist (and the past recipient of Walter's ire) for help. The unlikely arrangement soon mellows into a grudging friendship in writer/director Joel Schumacher's Flawless.
