Synopsis by Ben Schultz

A flamboyant, cross-dressing teenager (Alex Lawther) is forced to live with his uptight father (Larry Pine) and attend a rigidly traditional high school. He endures taunts and bullying from his peers, and eventually decides to run for homecoming queen against a snobby popular girl (Abigail Breslin). Trudie Styler directed this coming-of-age story, which is adapted from a novel by James St. James. Bette Midler and Laverne Cox co-star.
