Natasha Lyonne, star of ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK, made a big early impression in this cult 90s comedy by Jamie Babbit. Lyonne plays Megan, an all American cheerleader, who just so happens to be a lesbian. Her family intervene to try and send her to a conversion therapy camp.
Babbit's broad satire has got better with each passing year and now stands as a touchstone film of the decade. Featuring excellent support from Clea DuVall (GIRL, INTERRUPTED), Melanie Lynskey (HEAVENLY CREATURES) and Cathy Moriarty (RAGING BULL), the film also has a glorious cameo from everyone's favourite drag queen RuPaul.
NOTES: Features sexual themes and strong language.
