Get Ready To Raise Your Arms And Celebrate Life!
If you need to be cheered up – and don’t we all – then you need to head to your InDemand movie options and watch “Stage Mother” right now!
“Stage Mother” is a joyous celebration of inclusion and forgiveness, with an incredible performance by Actress Jacki Weaver, who plays conservative, Texas church choir director Maybelline…imagine her shock when she inherits her recently deceased son’s drag club!
She heads to San Francisco to take care of her son’s affairs – and discovers a whole new world! In the raucous, vibrant drag scene, she begins to open up and find new meaning for her life, even becoming a mother figure to the club’s flamboyant performers!
Here is the trailer:
This terrific new film is premiering on demand, which is the new world order in this #QuarantineLife – and is directed by Thom Fitzgerald. Starring along with Jacki Weaver is Lucy Liu, Adrian Grenier and Mya Taylor.
Along with the main stars are a bounty of terrific drag Queens!
The musical numbers are joyful and uplifting – but know that the film is brutally honest about how people who live this lifestyle are often ostracized by their families, which gives the film a real emotional heft.
By the way, they have beautiful locations in San Francisco, really bringing the city to life….except that it was mostly shot in Canada!
While there are beautiful exterior shots of San Francisco that capture its incredible beauty, most of the film was actually shot in Halifax Nova Scotia!
As the director said, “it’s a Victorian city on a hill overlooking a beautiful bay” so it filled in perfectly for San Francisco!
This is a really terrific, uplifting film, and as I said, something we need right now…and if you just need to laugh laugh laugh – head to Netflix right now for this:
“The Wrong Missy” is hilariously funny – even though very raunchy at times!
