CLUB 18+75 min

Director: Jamie Babbit Starring:Michelle Williams, Natasha Lyonne, Clea DuVall Released:Wed 21 Feb 2024


The breakout role for Natasha Lyonne (Russian Doll, Poker Face) as a naive teenager sent to a conversion therapy camp by her straitlaced parents, But I’m a Cheerleader has endured as a queer classic. Its fervent rejection of heteronormativity and its celebration of queerness can be seen at each stage of production – in the storyline, the aesthetic, the cast and the crew. Lyonne co-stars with Clea DuVall, and Melanie Lynskey, who got their breaks alongside a campy combination of seasoned actors: RuPaul, Moriarty, Bud Cort and Mink Stole.
