Richard E. Grant in Everybody's Talking About Jamie


Richard E. Grant is a master thespian, who performed many high profiles roles. To play a drag queen in Amazon’s Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, this will be his first.

The film is adapted from a musical play, which was based on someone’s real-life story in a documentary.

Here’s the official synopsis:

Inspired by true events, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie follows Jamie New, 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 and his loving mum shower him with endless support, while local drag legend Miss Loco Chanelle mentors him toward his debut stage performance. But Jamie also has to contend with an unsupportive father, an uninspired careers advisor, 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 step out of the darkness into the spotlight.

The film stars Max Harwood, Sarah Lancashire, Lauren Patel, Shobna Gulati, Ralph Ineson, Adeel Akhtar, Samuel Bottomley, with Sharon Horgan and Richard E. Grant.
