It's about time!
7 November 2018 | by glitterwookieeSee all my reviews

So glad to finally see an accurate representation of burlesque on screen! Now we can finally point to a movie to show the muggle world what burlesque really is rather than having to explain it's not like the Christina Aguilera movie. As the majority of the cast is made up of actual burlesque performers it really helps bring a truely authentic feeling of burlesque to the screen.

The story is beautifully written and directed by Jackie English and the entire cast delivers a wonderful performance.

I would highly recommend this movie!
