Directed by Jamie Babbit

United States 1999 85 mins.

When all signs point to Megan (Natasha Lyonne) being a lesbian, her friends and family insist she be carted off to True Directions, a gay conversion therapy camp. In her directorial debut, Babbit crafts a sly comedy worthy of the campy sensibilities of John Waters’ most popular work. “But I’m a Cheerleader is a sharp, intelligent outing bolstered by both Natasha Lyonne and Clea DuVall who communicate their conflicts and turmoil (and eventual joy) with low-key power, and through whom a credible love story begins to build.”—Michael Thomson, BBC
