Monday’s movie: Kinky Boots
I watched this cute little movie before heading out to Hot Docs tonight. While in the vein of The Full Monty and Waking Ned Devine, this movie didn’t really do much for me. The premise is cute: old shoe factory is dying and to revive business son gets the idea to create a line of transvestite footwear. Chiwetel Ejiofor is excellent as Lola/Simon and overall the cast is strong, however, I just couldn’t get in to it. There are a few good laughs and the music is not bad but there is nothing ‘kinky’ about his movie. I believe this is out in very limited release here in Toronto. Personally, I’d hold off and rent it.
