'Hedwig and the Angry Inch' is a 2001 American musical comedy-drama film written for the screen and directed by John Cameron Mitchell. Based on Mitchell's and Stephen Trask's stage musical 'Hedwig and the Angry Inch', it accompanies Hedwig Robinson, an East German trans woman rock singer who subsequently develops a relationship with a younger man, Tommy, becoming his mentor and musical collaborator, only to have Tommy steal her music and become a rock star. The film follows Hedwig and her backing band, the Angry Inch, as they shadow Tommy's tour, while exploring Hedwig's past and complex gender identity. Mitchell also reprises his role as Hedwig from the original production.
