Billy Bloom (Alex Lawther) is one-of-a-kind: a fabulous, glitter-bedecked, gender-fluid teenager whose razor-sharp wit is matched only by his outrageous, anything-goes fashion sense. But when he's forced to live with his straight-laced father, Billy finds himself a diva-out-of-water at his new ultra-conservative high school. Undaunted by the bullies who refuse to understand him, the fearless Billy sets out to make a big statement in his own inimitable way: challenging the school's reigning mean girl for the title of homecoming queen!
I really enjoyed this film. I'd half expected it to be a bit "preachy" on the gender fluid issue, but in fact it was really entertaining and showed how to get a point across without beating you over the head with it. Alex Lawther (Billy) is excellent and I loved the dry humour, and his determination not to be a victim, but to be himself and "glitter" - no matter what the consequences. The costumes were great too. Recommended.
