The most joyous and queer-affirming time you’ll have in the cinema this festival is Everybody’s Talking about Jamie, the sparkling and multi award-winning musical filmed live at the Apollo Theatre in London.
Jamie New has just turned 16 and dreams of being a drag queen. He lives with his supportive single mum in a council flat but is bullied at school for being gay; however, Jamie’s no easy pushover, he’s quick-witted and altogether fabulous. With a little help from local drag legend, Loco Chanelle, and his best friend, Pritti, he’s all set to throw aside the haters and stand tall in the limelight, where he belongs!
