Wednesday Recommendation #8

1. To wong foo, thanks for everything (Starring Wesley Snipes, Patrick Swayze, John Leguizamo)

Released in 1995

A road trip with style and panache, two drag queens, Noxeema and Vida, and newbie and wannabe drag queen Chi-Chi travel across America for the Drag Queen finals in Hollywood. With a cheap second-hand Cadillac convertible for transport it's fun and adventure all the way. That is, until the old banger conks out and they're stuck in the middle of nowhere, in dusty and dry small-town, backwater, Plainsville. Hot on their tails, too, is homophobic, redneck Sheriff Dollard, and he's as mad as hell, and he's "gonna get these men in dresses". With having to teach the young newbie the ways of becoming a fully fledged Queen, an angry cop, small-town blues and the locals having to adjust to these new, strange and colourful individuals, it all makes-up for fun, frolics and home truths from both sides of the fence. A ride on the open road and a chance meeting, this is more than just minds, friendship and fate opening up in the unlikeliest of places.
