Taken from the life story of Leslie Jordan. A Tennessee country boy realizes he's gay and keeps getting in trouble with the local bad boys. He hears Atlanta is the new place to be, tosses his country overalls and shows up at the disco in silver platform shoes and a polyester Saturday Night Fever get up. He meets Tripper (Mark Pelligrino) and the trouble and adventures don't stop. Leslie's partner in crime is Miss Make Do, a colorful debutante of a mess, rebelling against her wealthy Southern family and running with the druggies and disco drunks. Amazing cast including the late John Ritter as the preacher trying to pray the homosexual temptations out of young Leslie. Many other related recognizable cameos.

Loved this Leslie Jordan film
11 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Leslie's real life story unfolds in this amazingly well-done Indy film. If you liked Sordid Lives or Leslie in Will & Grace, you will love this film. Also Erin Chandler (Miss Make Do) is impressive...she is excellent as Leslie's muse! Michelle Phillips is wonderful and there are several other surprise cameos such as John Ritter as the impassioned preacher! It captures the dilemma of being gay not only in the world but in the very judgmental south! Mark Pellegrino plays a gorgeous Tripper! Some feel the piece is dark but it is a very realistic look at homosexuality in the 70's! No wonder this film won several independent film festivals!
