Film description

Glamour has never been more grotesque than in Female Trouble, which injects the Hollywood melodrama with anarchic decadence.  

Divine, director John Waters’ larger-than-life muse, engulfs the screen with charisma as Dawn Davenport, the living embodiment of the film’s lurid mantra, progresses from a teenage nightmare hell-bent on getting cha-cha heels for Christmas to a fame monster whose egomaniacal impulses land her in the electric chair.  

Shot in Waters’ native Baltimore on 16mm, with a cast drawn from his beloved troupe of regulars, the Dreamlanders, this film­—the director’s favourite of his work with Divine—comes to life through the tinsel-toned vision of production designer Vincent Peranio and costume designer/makeup artist Van Smith.  

An endlessly quotable fan favourite, Female Trouble offers up perverse pleasures that never fail to satisfy.
