Female Trouble

A new 4K digital restoration! Glamour has never been more grotesque than in FEMALE TROUBLE. John Waters’ larger-than-life muse Divine engulfs the screen with charisma as Dawn Davenport, who progresses from teenage nightmare hell-bent on getting cha-cha heels for Christmas to a fame monster whose egomaniacal impulses land her in the electric chair. And endlessly quotable favorite, FEMALE TROUBLE offers up perverse pleasures that never “Female Trouble”

Cast: Divine, Mink Stole, David Lochary, Mary Vivian Pearce, Edith Massey, Cookie Mueller

Shot in black and white with an eye for detail, the film compellingly captures a specific time “John Waters Presents I, Olga”
