Hedwig and the Angry Inch

Director: John Cameron Mitchell.
Starring: John Cameron Mitchell, Miriam Shore, Michael Pitt. USA 2001. 92 mins.

Hedwig is playing small joints in the States with her band The Angry Inch whilst recounting her life story. Originally a boy in East Berlin who married a GI after a botched sex-change operation, she ends up dumped in a trailer park and falls for a local teenager, Tommy, who steels her songs and becomes a huge star. Glam Rock has never seemed less glamorous for the down-at-heel Hedwig.
