This fascinating documentary opens a door into the spectacular world of the Takarazuka Revue, a highly successful musical theater company in Japan. Each year, thousands of girls apply to enter the male-run Takarazuka Music School. The few who are accepted endure years of a highly disciplined and reclusive existence before they can join the Revue, choosing male or female roles. 'Dream Girls' offers a compelling insight into gender and sexual identity and the contradictions experienced by Japanese women today.
