About the Movie
Billy Bloom (Alex Lawther, The Imitation Game) is one-of-a-kind: a fabulous, glitter-bedecked, gender-bending teenager whose razor-sharp wit is matched only his by his outrageous, anything-goes fashion sense. When his glamorous mother (Bette Midler) is forced to send him to live with his straight-laced father (Larry Pine), Billy finds himself a diva-out-of-water at his new ultra-conservative high school. Undaunted by the bullies who don't understand him, the fearless Billy sets out to make a big statement in his own inimitable way: challenging the school's reigning mean girl (Abigail Breslin) for the title of homecoming queen. This proudly offbeat comedy is an irresistible ode to outsiders and nonconformists of all stripes. With Laverne Cox.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Mr. Lawther is sympathetic and appealing as Billy, but Ms. Styler seems to mistake broad strokes for stylistic daring, and her colorful but diffuse movie never jells.
Rotten: Styler's peppy but thin foray into feature direction is especially disappointing following her strong track record as a producer of more singular, stylistically confident indies ...
Fresh: Bitterly funny and warmly empathetic ...
Fresh: It is never boring, and its plea for inclusion, acceptance and tolerance over bullying in the confusing fabric of a changing society is laudable.

This is the only time I have ever rated a movie or written a review. I loved it. I am a old queen 53 years old. This was a little like the old Rocky Hore Picture show type of movie. More of a high school coming out and learning to love who you really are. My hight school was very much like the one pictured in the movie. The strange thing is that I am taking care of my partents and have wandered up to see a few high school football games and - yes- the homecoming. Nothing has changed in 34 years. It is the same thing. Like a pieice of our Americana history that hasn't moved. The only thing is that now the kids all have thier smart phones and are texting one another. I would never have been free to come out at school. I graduated in 1983. Great movie and good acting.
