We’re happy to offer our DC readers the chance to attend a free early screening of Amazon’s anticipated film, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, based on the award-winning stage musical! The film stars newcomer Max Harwood, Sarah Lancashire, Sharon Horgan, and Richard E. Grant.
SYNOPSIS: Inspired by true events, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is the film adaptation of the award-winning hit musical from London’s West End, about Jamie New (newcomer Max Harwood), a teenager in a blue-collar English town with a dream of life on stage. While his classmates plan their livelihoods after graduation, Jamie contemplates revealing his secret career ambition as a fierce and proud drag queen. His best friend Pritti (Lauren Patel) and his loving mom (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 it’s not all rainbows for Jamie as his unsupportive dad (Ralph Ineson), an uninspired career advisor (Sharon Horgan), and some ignorant school kids attempt to rain on his sensational aspirations. In rousing and colorful musical numbers, Jamie and his community inspire one another to be more accepting, and to see the value in facing adversity stepping out of the darkness into the spotlight.
The screening takes place tomorrow, September 8th, at 7:00pm at Bethesda Row Cinema. If you’d like to attend, simply go to the Amazon Studios screening site here. Please remember all screenings are first come first served and you will need to arrive early to ensure seating. Enjoy the show!
Everybody’s Talking About Jamie arrives globally on Amazon Prime Video on September 17th.
