❉ Natasha Lyonne, Clea DuVall and RuPaul star in ’90s cult comedy restored in 4K on Blu-ray in a new director’s cut.
Blending ’90s rom-com charm with the sharp satire of an 80s John Waters’ comedy, But I’m a Cheerleader is a timeless, hilarious and candy-coloured tale of acceptance and love that’s as relevant now as it was on its release, restored in 4K for this brand new director’s cut. Its cast comprises Natasha Lyonne (Russian Doll, Orange is the New Black), Clea DuVall (Carnivale, Veep, The Handmaid’s Tale), Cathy Moriarty (Raging Bull), RuPaul Charles (RuPaul’s Drag Race), Eddie Cibrian (CSI Miami), Melanie Lynskey (Mrs America, The Perks of Being a Wallflower), Mink Stole (Hairspray, Female Trouble) and Michelle Williams (Brokeback Mountain, The Greatest Showman).
Jamie Babbit’s classic 90s cult comedy But I’m A Cheerleader heads to Blu-ray this June in a sparkling new 4K-restored Director’s Cut.
This whimsically edgy comedy follows teenager Megan (Natasha Lyonne), whose suburban existence, filled with friends, cheerleading, and all-American fun, is upended when her straight-laced parents suspect she may be a lesbian. In a panic, they send her to True Directions, a ‘rehabilitation’ camp run by the strict and prudish Mary (Cathy Moriarty), to mount an intervention led by counselor Mike (RuPaul Charles). Megan dutifully follows the program — until she develops feelings for another camper (Clea DuVall)…
With a musical based on But I’m a Cheerleader heading to the stage soon, there’s no better time to revisit this beloved 90s comedy. More information on the musical is expected this summer.
