Trixie Mattel: Moving Parts
Trixie is the drag persona of Milwaukee-born country musician Brian Firkus. We meet as she's recording a new album and struggling to keep her TV comedy spin-off, The Trixie & Katya Show, together. As Trixie admits, she did a really shitty job on her first season of RuPaul's Drag Race. When she's approached to join the All Stars season, she feels she has nothing to lose – and yet much to prove. A whirlwind tour follows – Dublin-Manchester-Los Angeles-Chicago – with hardly a moment to pull on her Parton-like gown or paint her signature face. Not just an on-the-road-with-Trixie film, this is also a surprisingly revealing portrait of the life of a professional performer – one with heels, humour and heart.
