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.
