 A great TV movie about the rise and fall of Boy George and Culture Club.   

A strong and attractive cast bring all the familiar names back to life in this biographical drama.  Douglas Booth who plays George is far too beautiful, but that alone is the reason you forgive that little excess ... after all, we would all choose someone stunning to play us, wouldn't we!  A very interesting and moving drama, very well written and beautifully executed.  A must for all fans of the early 80's as it includes Steve Strange, Marilyn and others.

Christopher And His Kind

A beautiful cast, a beautiful story, hot scenes and tear jerk moments. 
So well crafted that it is easy to become emotionally attached to the characters and their lives.  Shows how freedom and joy was stolen away by the rise of the Nazi’s and the fanatical support they got from the deluded masses.  A fascinating and open memoir by writer Christopher Isherwood becomes a high quality gay movie that is a must watch!   Douglas Booth (Boy George in Worried About The Boy) is even more stunning here!

A bit arty, a bit grimy. Suspenseful, dreamy and brutal.

A clear statement about the hypocracy of the church.  Overall a dark and tragic story.  It suffers from the way it jumps about, creative, I know, but it would have been more effective if the story was linear and more impacting as well.
