Film description

Adapted by Isobel Lennart from the hit broadway musical of the same name, Funny Girl sees the legendary Barbara Streisand star as comedian Fanny Brice, in an Oscar-winning performance that continues to inspire audiences 50 years on.

Starting off in the Jewish slums of the Lower East Side, rather than relying the superficial beauty standards of the show business world to make it, she uses her wicked sense of humour and wonderful singing voice to take her to the top as a Ziegfeld Girl.

With its iconic musical numbers including Don't Rain on My Parade, Funny Girl confirmed Streisand's place as a true Hollywood legend, and in the years that followed, a huge icon for the gay community worldwide.

For this special Reclaim the Frame screening, Funny Girl will be preceded by a Streisand-inspired live performance from singer and Drag Idol UK 2018 finalist Vivienne Lynsey.
