Bruno (2000)

Film details


Comedy. The eponymous Bruno is an eight-year-old with one slight problem - he prefers to wear dresses. Unfortunately, this does not go down well with the other children at his Catholic school. Bruno's heavily overweight mother, Angela, has too many problems of her own to notice there is anything very odd about Bruno's behaviour. Bruno manages to make a friend at school, of another 'outsider', Shaniqua. However, when an accident lands Bruno in hospital, the fact that he is wearing a dress incites some confusion. Eventually, Bruno's grandmother, Helen, takes charge of the situation, and discovers that Bruno doesn't want to be a girl - he just likes wearing pretty clothes...
