Max Harwood stars in EVERYBODY’S TALKING ABOUT JAMIE
Oh, to be a drag queen on stage! Amazon Originals released the first look images of the upcoming musical Everybody’s Talking About Jamie.
This year with 2021, we already had a great musical with In the Heights from Lin-Manuel Miranda and at the end of the year with the anticipated reboot West Wide Story from Steven Spielberg. Sandwiched in between is a little musical Everybody’s Talking About Jamie that has some catchy tunes and dance numbers.
The film stars Max Harwood, Sarah Lancashire, Lauren Patel, Shobna Gulati, Ralph Ineson, Adeel Akhtar, Samuel Bottomley, with Sharon Horgan and Richard E. Grant.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Inspired by true events, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie follows Jamie New (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 (Patel) and his loving mum (Lancashire) shower him with endless support, while local drag legend Miss Loco Chanelle (Grant) mentors him toward his debut stage performance. But Jamie also has to contend with an unsupportive father (Ineson), an uninspired careers advisor (Horgan), and some ignorant school kids who attempt to rain on his sensational parade. In rousing and colorful music numbers, Jamie and his community inspire one another to overcome prejudice, be more accepting, and step out of the darkness into the spotlight.
