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.
This screening of Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is followed by a very special live Q&A with Director Johnathan Butterell and several cast and crew members including Lauren Patel, Tom MacRae, Dan Gillespie Sells, Peter Carlton and Mark Herbert.
