CGiii Comment

The documentary that inspired the stage show...that is soon to become a feature film!

It's a little bizarre...in that Jamie wants to go to his school prom dressed as a drag queen...because, when he grows up, he wants to be a drag queen!

There's a little bit of a hoopla over his decision...understandably so! If every kid went to the prom as what they want to be when they grow up...it would be a fancy dress party...astronauts and porn stars galore!

Now, Jamie is an affable young man with a long-suffering, cash-starved and supportive mother - there is a soupçon of: Spoiled brat...somewhat tolerable rather than downright disagreeable. He gets his way without much of the presumed and expected hoopla!

Jamie is a shrewd young man - he approached the production company and, duly, got this film made...and, as they say, the rest is history!

Now, it seems that Jamie has hung up his wig - just like the astronauts and porn stars - yip, maturity kicks the ass out of dreams!


No trailer...

The(ir) Blurb...

Documentary following the story of teenager Jamie Campbell, who wants to be a drag queen. Growing up in an ex-mining village in County Durham, Jamie has already faced his fair share of difficulties after coming out as gay at 14. However, with the majority of his family and friends being supportive, he has decided that he is ready to share his passion with the world. He plans to embrace who he really is by attending his end of school prom in drag, but he doesn't get the reaction he'd hoped for from both his school and, heart-breakingly, his own father. So Jamie has to make some difficult decisions. Jamie spends time with an established drag artist and battles his demons, performing as his alter ego, Fifi La True, for the very first time in front of a large audience. As Jamie has some frank and intimate family moments, and finds out just how strong he really is, the film explores his hopes and fears for the future. Will he get the acceptance he craves from his peers and the confidence to be who he really is?
