We’re all in need of a few more feel-good movies at the moment, and Amazon Prime’s “Everybody’s Talking About Jamie” might be just the thing. The movie follows a wannabe drag queen as he attempts to follow his dreams and be true to himself in one of the most difficult places to do that — high school. The “Everybody’s Talking About Jamie” trailer previews a heartwarming story about finding yourself, being true to yourself, and having the confidence to be yourself in public.
Directed by Jonathan Butterell, the film stars Max Harwood in his feature film debut, Sarah Lancashire (“Yesterday“), Lauren Patel in her feature film debut, Shobna Gulati (“Where the Heart Is“), and Richard E. Grant (“Gosford Park“). Take a look at the official synopsis for “Everybody’s Talking About Jamie” below:
Inspired by true events, “Everybody’s Talking About Jamie” follows Jamie New (Harwood), a teenager from Sheffield who dreams of life on stage. 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 (Patel) and his loving mum (Lancashire) shower him with endless support, while local drag legend Miss Loco Chanelle (Grant) mentors him toward his debut stage performance. But Jamie also has to contend with an unsupportive father (Ineson), an uninspired careers advisor (Horgan), and some ignorant school kids who attempt to rain on his sensational parade. In rousing and colorful musical numbers, Jamie and his community inspire one another to overcome prejudice, be more accepting, and step out of the darkness into the spotlight.
“Everybody’s Talking About Jamie” will be released on Amazon Prime globally on September 17. Take a look at the new trailer below.
