|Rising star Max Harwood makes his onscreen debut as the irrepressible 16-year-old Jamie in Amazon Prime Video’s new film, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie.
Jamie is an out and proud student who’s bursting with dizzying levels of self-expression, most recently boosted by his loving mother’s gift of some fabulous high-heeled ruby slippers. Jamie’s pathway in life is clear: he’s destined to be a fierce drag queen, and with the local drag shop owner (Richard E. Grant) taking him under his wing, he’s poised for greatness.
But when Jamie announces that he wants to attend his school’s prom as his new drag persona, controversy strikes. Bullies come out of the woodwork, some of the faculty bristle at the idea, and soon battle lines are drawn between those who want Jamie to have the freedom to express himself, and those who’d rather keep to quiet tradition.
