But I'm a Cheerleader

But I'm a Cheerleader ★★★★★

The way I see it, this whole film takes place inside Megan’s head, it’s her internal dialogue whilst she deals with the realisation that she is a lesbian. Each of the characters at the boot camp represents a different queer stereotype that exists in her mind. It’s all one big metaphor. 

Is the acting great? No. But it’s a brilliant film that reflects the adolescent queer experience very well, with great cinematography and Natasha Lyonne... so what more could you want?

Also, equating being a vegetarian and eating tofu to being queer... genius.
