Nostalgic News: Kinky Boots was released 15 years ago.

0

In all the glamour and beauty it still holds to this day, it’s crazy to think that Julian Jarrold’s Kinky Boots, based on the true story of a Northampton shoe-making factory, turns 15 years old today. The film is an incredible journey of love and friendship, with excitement and passion that makes you want to get up and dance; it’s no surprise the film inspired a musical now into its 9th year travelling around the globe.

Fronted by the brilliant Joel Edgerton as business-owner Charlie, Kinky Boots proves the importance of unlikely friendships and unexpected inspirations. Chiwetel Ejiofor as drag queen performer Lola isn’t exactly what you expect from your average film viewing, however, it’s one of most scene-stealing performances in all of cinema. Lola lights up the room with her ‘kinky boots’ and amazing tunes, with ‘Whatever Lola Wants’ and ‘Yes Sir I Can Boogie’ being the ultimate feel-good songs. I want to visit the Kinky Boots Factory just to meet Lola.
