Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is a film adaptation of the drama/musical of the same name.
Starring Max Harwood, Lauren Patel, Richard E. Grant, Sarah Lancashire, and directed by Jonathan Butterell; it’s the story of a teenage boy from Sheffield, England who wants to be a drag queen.
I love it when people get to be precisely themselves and succeed regardless of other people’s ideas of who they ought to be. Such predicaments always take me back to one of my favourite quotes of all time. A quote by writer/feminist Audre Lorde: ‘If I didn’t define myself for myself, I would be crunched into other people’s fantasies for me and eaten alive.’
I’m looking forward to seeing Jamie win. Also, I recently finished watching Catastrophe, a very well written comedy series written by and starring Rob Delaney and Sharon Horgan. The latter being the teacher character in this trailer. Catastrophe is a great show that turned me into a life long fan of Horgan. I’d see Everybody’s Talking About Jamie anyway. Now I’m that little bit more excited because Horgan’s in it, even though her character isn’t exactly likeable.
Shobna Gulati, Shameem Ahmad, Ralph Ineson, Samuel Bottomley, Ramzan Miah, Zane Alsaroori, Gareth Joyner, Alex Anstey, Daniel Wallace and Dannie Pye also star.
