Description: Filmmaker Daniel Peddle offers a look at a little-examined side of lesbian culture in this documentary. Aggressives is a name used by some for women who prefer relationships with women, but choose to emphasize the masculine side of their personalities -- often to the extent of living in male drag, and through dress and exercise emphasizing their resemblance to men while toning down their female side. In The Aggressives, Peddle introduces us to six women who feel most comfortable while they embrace their inner male, including Kisha, a messenger whose clients don't all realize she's a woman; Rjai, who is seen getting fitted for a new suit while enjoying a small degree of celebrity after appearing on The Ricki Lake Show; Tiffany, whose persona is that of a gay man and is in a relationship with a man who is undergoing gender reassignment treatments; Octavia, who after being sent to prison on drug charges finds herself forced to take on a new and more violent persona while behind bars; and Marquise, who undergoes a similar crisis when she joins the Army. The Aggressives was Daniel Peddle's first feature film.~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
