Storyline

In 1980 young George O'Dowd baffles his parents with his love of frocks and make-up and moves into a squat with kindred spirit Peter,who dresses as Marilyn Monroe and calls himself Marilyn. They make a splash at Steve Strange's trendy Blitz Club where George gets a job in the cloakroom but George is unlucky in his relationships with men until he meets wannabe musician Kirk. Through Kirk George meets the handsome drummer Jon Moss,on whom he develops a crush, but sacked by the Blitz and spurned by Kirk,George turns to Sex Pistols' manager Malcolm McLaren to further his music career. George's spell with McLaren's group Bow Wow Wow is short but fan Mikey North is impressed and asks George to sing in a group he is forming,where George again meets Jon. They will have an affair and the group will become the very successful Culture Club. Four years later, however, hounded by the tabloid press amid stories of his drug addiction, an unhappy George turns to Jon for advice on his future. Written by don @ minifie-1

real admirable
31 July 2013 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

it is a really good film for the science to not be only illustration of a period and image of a star. it is interesting, captivating, seductive. because it presents spirit of a time not only portrait of an artist. but key of this smart construction is the extraordinary art of Douglas Booth to sustain a heavy and complex character. he is the key. and the star in this story about ambition, identity and basic foundation of success. it is a sensitive/delicate work. and this fact is essential in the competition against many other biographic movies. it is not a film for fans and not at all introduction in 1980 years. it is, in fact, a demonstration of courage and inspiration. and admirable circle from different small pieces who can be parts of testimony about an unique form of liberty.
