Hedwig and the Angry Inch

Hedwig (John Cameron Mitchell) resolves her major life issues, including her differences with Tommy Gnosis (Michael Pitt). This finally permits the repressed persona of Hansel to re-emerge.

This explanation will be fairly puzzling to those who haven't seen the film, so to couch the resolution in terms of classic psychobabble: In the end, we find out that Hedwig is not 'a woman trapped in a man's body,' but rather that Hansel is a man so consumed by hatred that he has trapped himself inside of a woman's (Hedwig's) character, the only part of himself that's been strong enough do deal with the pain.
