Female Trouble

Director: John Waters Run Time: 89 min. Format: 35mm Rating: R Release Year: 1974

Starring: Divine, David Lochary, Mary Vivian Pearce

If we could spend the holidays with one person it would surely be Mr. John Waters. In Female Trouble, Waters tells the tale of the life and times of Dawn Davenport (played by the brilliant Divine). Not getting the cha-cha heels she wants for Christmas sets the course of Dawn’s life in motion: she runs away, gets pregnant while hitchhiking, becomes a fashion model and turns into a mass murderer who meets the electric chair. It doesn’t get any naughtier than this!
