A fun lighthearted musical, think a "Brown" Glee
27 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

If you accept it for what it is, you will love it. This WILL be a cult classic.

It's a fun, enjoyable and touching story about a young gay man who runs away from home.

He starts out as a petty thief and meets a guy he likes who then introduces him to the ballroom scene. The story of his "house mother" is also told as she struggles to survive with a lover who is incarcerated. We also explore the lines between masculinity and femininity, as well as the creativity and competition that goes into the dazzling costumes of the ballroom scene.

Lady Gaga has nothing on the blood and sweat that goes into these expressions of society's rejected souls.

One of the highlights is at the bowling alley, where you will feel empowered to knock down the pins of life.

The music is wonderful and while some are fun and light, as the film closes, I dare you to not be touched during the very telling exposition of the consequences of homophobia in the black community.
