Press clippings

The kind of endearingly quirky low-budget film at which the Brits excel (think Little Voice, The Full Monty). Charlie Price (Joel Edgerton) believes his family shoe factory is doomed until a transvestite (Chiwetel Ejiofor) sashays into his life and persuades him that thigh-high stilettos are the way ahead. Ejiofor is a peerless actor; he's deeply touching here.

The Telegraph, 6th May 2010

Devilishly handsome British actor-turned-Hollywood hot property Chiwetel Ejiofor scored his first Golden Globe nomination in this comfortingly formulaic Britcom - with a kinky twist.

He's Lola, a drag queen who helps turn an ailing Northampton family shoe business around when its new owner spots a gap in the market for male transvestite footwear.
