Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is the true story of Jamie New, a teenager from Sheffield who dreams of becoming a drag queen.

Directed by Jonathan Butterell in his directorial debut, this vibrant, fun-filled biographical musical is based on the smash-hit stage musical of the same name from 2017.

Set in Sheffield, and featuring a brilliant ensemble cast, the film follows 16-year old Jamie, a misfit who isn’t quite sure what his future holds. Supported by his loving mum, and close-knit group of friends, Jamie overcomes prejudice and intolerance to become a sensation.
