Everybody’s Talking About Jamie (2021) - S: Harwood, Lancashire, Grant, Horgan, Ineson



Inspired by true events, Everybody's Talking About Jamie follows Jamie New (Max 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 (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. In rousing and colorful musical numbers, Jamie and his community inspire one another to overcome prejudice, be more accepting, and to step out of the darkness into the spotlight.
Based on the UK musical...

This was originally set up and going to be released by 20th Century... and then Disney kept delaying it... then eventually sold it to Amazon.

I'm disappointed they relegated this to streaming, but didn't do that for Dear Evan Hansen.
Loved the show when I saw it in London, and I'm thinking this will capture a fraction of the fun I had at the show, but I'm hoping it will exceed my expectations.

DEH will hit PVOD 3 weeks after it’s theatrical release.

.
Huh? Dear Evan Hansen was a HUGE Broadway hit with a showstopper song that found its way into popular culture, with huge Hollywood stars attached and made by a big Hollywood studio. Jamie is literally none of those things. It didn't even play in New York. It also has a much more limited audience because of subject matter - - a musical about a 16 year old aspiring drag queen isn't going to bring many families back to the movie theaters in the Midwest during a pandemic.
