WINNER: AUDIENCE AWARD, PALM SPRINGS INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL 2020
A sparkling Jacki Weaver leads as Maybelline, a conservative, Texas church-choir director who inherits her recently deceased son’s drag club. Defying her conservative husband, she heads to San Francisco where she meets a kaledioscope of characters. At first shocked by the raucous and stimulating new environment, she begins to open up and find new meaning for her life, even becoming a mother-figure to the club’s flamboyant performers. With a fiery supporting cast, including Lucy Liu (Animals, Kill Bill) and Mya Taylor (Tangerine), director Thom Fitzgerald’s lyrical comedy-drama focuses not only on the gleaming cityscape, but on high notes of hope, unity and healing.
