I Am Divine Review

Image for I Am Divine

An account of how Harris Glenn Milstead, the offspring of a middle-class Maryland family, was discovered by John Waters and shot to fame as drag queen and actress Divine.

★★★★

Packed with gleeful archive footage, Jeffrey Schwarz’s affectionate and acute account of the taboo-shattering partnership between the ‘King Of Sleaze’ and ‘Pope Of Trash’ also touches on courageous activism and personal sadness with sensitivity and wit. A fitting tribute to a unique legend.

Touching and funny. Waters fans should sign up now.
