Jamie Babbit’s classic 90s cult comedy But I’m A Cheerleader heads to Blu-ray this
June in a sparkling new 4K-restored Director’s Cut.
This whimsically edgy comedy follows teenager Megan (Natasha Lyonne, Orange is the
New Black), whose suburban existence, filled with friends, cheerleading, and all-American
fun, is upended when her straight-laced parents suspect she may be a lesbian. In a panic,
they send her to True Directions, a ‘rehabilitation’ camp run by the strict and prudish Mary
(Cathy Moriarty, Raging Bull), to mount an intervention led by counselor Mike (RuPaul
Charles, RuPaul’s Drag Race). Megan dutifully follows the program — until she develops
feelings for another camper (Clea DuVall, The Handmaid’s Tale)…
Blending 90s rom-com charm with the sharp satire of an 80s John Waters’ comedy, But I’m
a Cheerleader is a timeless, hilarious and candy-coloured tale of acceptance and love that’s
as relevant now as it was on its release, restored in 4K for this brand new director’s cut.
Starring: Natasha Lyonne, Clea DuVall, Cathy Moriarty, RuPaul Charles, Eddie Cibrian (CSI
Miami), Melanie Lynskey (Mrs America, The Perks of Being a Wallflower), Mink Stole
(Hairspray, Female Trouble) and Michelle Williams (Brokeback Mountain, The Greatest
