Amazon have released the official trailer for the upcoming film adaptation of the musical Everybody’s Talking About Jamie.
The official synopsis for the film is as follows:
Inspired by true events, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is the film adaptation of the award-winning hit musical from London’s West End, about Jamie New, a teenager in a blue collar English town with a dream of life on stage. While his classmates plan their livelihoods after graduation, Jamie contemplates revealing his secret career ambition as a fabulous and proud drag queen. His best friend Pritti and his loving mom shower him with endless support while local drag legend Miss Loco Chanelle mentors him toward his debut stage performance. But it’s not all rainbows for Jamie as his deadbeat dad, an uninspired career advisor, and some ignorant school kids attempt to rain on his sensational aspirations. In rousing and colourful musical numbers, Jamie and his community inspire one another to be more accepting, and to see the value in facing adversity stepping out of the darkness into the spotlight.
The musical is adapted by Tom MacRae, directed by Jonathan Butterell, and stars Max Harwood, Sarah Lancashire, Lauren Patel, Shobna Gulati, Ralph Ineson, Adeel Akhtar, Samuel Bottomley, Sharon Horgan and Richard E. Grant.
Everybody’s Talking About Jamie will become available on Amazon Prime on the 17th September 2021.
