90s Cult Comedy BUT I'M A CHEERLEADER Director's Cut on Blu-ray (21 June) from Lionsgate UK

Jamie Babbit’s classic 90s cult comedy But I’m A Cheerleader heads to Blu-ray this June in a sparkling new 4K-restored Director’s Cut.

This whimsically edgy comedy follows teenager Megan (Natasha Lyonne, Orange is the New Black), whose suburban existence, filled with friends, cheerleading, and all-American fun, is upended when her straight-laced parents suspect she may be a lesbian.

In a panic, they send her to True Directions, a “rehabilitation” camp run by the strict and prudish Mary (Cathy Moriarty, Raging Bull), to mount an intervention led by counselor Mike (RuPaul Charles, RuPaul’s Drag Race). Megan dutifully follows the program – until she develops feelings for another camper (Clea DuVall, The Handmaid’s Tale)…

Blending 90s rom-com charm with the sharp satire of an 80s John Waters’ comedy, But I’m a Cheerleader is a timeless, hilarious and candy-coloured tale of acceptance and love that’s as relevant now as it was on its release, restored in 4K for this brand new director’s cut.
