Storyline

This film is a satire of the women's liberation movement, staring a trio of female impersonators. Candy is an aloof heiress caught in an unhappy relationship with her brother. Jackie is a virginal intellectual who believes women are oppressed in contemporary American society. And Holly is a nymphomaniac who has come to loathe men, despite her attraction to them. Together, they join a militant feminist group, P.I.G. (Politically Involved Girls), but their newfound liberation doesn't make them any happier. Written by Anonymous

Great Film Despite Jackie Curtis
2 March 2006 | by (Algeria) – See all my reviews

This film was meant to be a staring vehicle for Holly Woodlawn but she felt too overpowered by Candy D. and Jackie Curtis and so became smaller and smaller in the film...(Or so says Paul Morrisey in the Bonus Features on the DVD) Candy Darling is absolutely marvelous in this film...Tis a pity she died so young...this movie is the only documentation of her great acting ability. I would say that Candy was much better than Jackie in the film. As most Warhol movies are Improvised...but following a plot..Jackie felt the need to speak all the time and to try and overpower everyone else in the scenes with her...when some of the minor characters spoke, Jackie constantly interrupts and delivers her own lines. Even in Candy Darling's famed "Go out and Earn It" scene..Jackie shouts something after every single thing Candy says. The director said that he had to constantly ask Jackie to tone it down! Despite this....the movie is still excellent (takes some patience though)...and is a wonderful documentation of the cultural revolution of the period (and a great satire of women's liberation)...
