Different for Girls is the 1996 comedy film about two old friends who reconnect and realize that much has changed. The film, directed by Richard Spence and written by Tony Marchant, follows the story of Paul Prentice (Rupert Graves) and Karl Foyle (Steven Mackintosh), two old friends from prep school. During their days at school, Karl was picked on for being effeminate, and Paul was one of the few who stood up for him and defended him against the violent bullies. The two haven't spoken for years, until they are involved in an accident and reconnect. Paul works as a courier, and one day crashes his motorcycle into a cab, which Karl is riding in. To his surprise, Karl has undergone sexual reassignment surgery, and is now living as a woman named Kim. Soon their relationship gets much deeper than they had expected, and is put to the test by some unexpected circumstances.
