Heels at the ready, people. It’s here.
Originally set to premiere in October of 2020, but held back due to COVID concerns, Amazon have finally dropped the official trailer for Everybody’s Talking About Jamie and it’s safe to say that 2021 movieland is about to get a lot more interesting and a LOT more queer. Yay!
The movie is based on the award-winning English musical of the same name, which in turn was based on the 2011 television documentary Jamie: Drag Queen at 16.
Newbie Max Harwood takes the lead as the 16-year-old Sheffield (U.K.) kid who dreams of pursuing a career as a drag queen.
The 2021 title has a stellar casting and official synopsis reads:
“While his classmates plan their livelihoods after they leave school, Jamie contemplates revealing his secret career ambition to become a fierce and proud drag queen. His best friend Pritti (Lauren Patel) and his loving mum (Sarah Lancashire) shower him with endless support, while local drag legend Miss Loco Chanelle (Richard E. Grant) mentors him toward his debut stage performance. But Jamie also has to contend with an unsupportive father (Ralph Ineson), an uninspired careers advisor (Sharon Horgan), and some ignorant school kids who attempt to rain on his sensational parade.”
Everybody’s Talking About Jamie streams on Prime Video from 17 September. Trailer below:
