A Streetcar Named Desire by way of John Waters, Andrea Riseborough leads this leather-clad, gender-bending treatise on lust, marriage and camp. Opening film, Rotterdam 2022.
A seemingly ideal lower-east side bohemian couple, Suze (Riseborough) and Arthur (Harry Melling) re-evaluate their sexuality, gender and connection to each other after witnessing the violent murder of a stranger by the Young Gents, a group of dangerously alluring greasers. Thrust into unfamiliar territory, Arthur is drawn to gang leader Teddy, whose lustful gaze and Tom of Finland-conjuring looks titillate Suze in equal measure. Featuring cameo appearances from Demi Moore and Mary Lynn Rajskub and styled straight out of an early Almodóvar film, this defiantly unconventional and feverish pseudo-musical cements director Amanda Kramer (Ladyworld, SFF 2019) as a unique voice in the contemporary film landscape.
An ebullient, campy thrill ride… a project that understands one should always give Demi Moore a movie star entrance.
Manuel Betancourt, Variety
Kramer is in complete command of the film’s breathy, lurid tone right up to its perfectly considered final frame, and the appeal of its kitsch nostalgia never wanes.
Ben Nicholson, bfi.org.uk
