Deleted Scenes with Commentary
The Real Kinky Boots Factory featurette
Journey of a Brogue featurette
Top Customer Reviews
An amusing and poignant film that has just the right mix of drama in it, "Kinky Boots" was inspired by a true story. The performances are uniformly excellent throughout with a star making turn from actor Chiwetel Ejiofor as the transvestite Lola. He's not exactly a beautiful transvestite but quite convincing in the role.
With a transfer that has the sheen and texture of leather "Kinky Boots" looks quite good with minimal digital artifacts. Although some of the darker scenes don't have quite as much detail as they should the overall look of the film in this transfer is quite good with accurate color, skin tones and detail. The 5.1 mix sounds good but most of the action and dialogue (not surprisingly) occurs in the center speaker and two front ones.
We get an observant and fact filled commentary track from director Julian Jarrold, stars Chiwetel Ejiofor, Joel Edgerton and Sarah-Jane Potts.Read more ›
"Go out and find another market," she tells him.
And he does.
At first that market doesn't sit too well with his Northhampton working class employees, but when they realize this is their last hope of keeping their jobs and the Price Shoe Factory alive, they dig in.
What are they making? Kinky Boots---don't think of them as shoes, but as tubes of sex...
And those sexy shoes are for men, women, and folks who haven't made up their minds yet. Their lead designer is a young drag queen "Lola" aka Simon, who is still learning who he is as well.
There are lessons about both life and business in this film. If I were teaching a management course, I'd be showing this along with the "Prince," because "Kinky Boots" teaches a lot about thinking outside of the box, engaging your workers, keeping their pride, and finally--doing what you have to do to keep the dream alive.
I'm glad I purchased this film and will strongly recommend it to friends.
Inspired by a real event, "Kinky Boots" tells the story of Charlie Price. Having grown up in the luxury men's shoe business, he is drawn back into the factory when his father passes away. Never particularly passionate about working for the family company, he is now in charge of everything. But everything isn't much! He discovers that the business is failing, the accounts have dried up, and that his father has kept the crew going fulfilling orders that don't exist. After all but giving up, he is inspired by a lovely young worker (of course!) that apathy isn't an answer--he must find a new niche market. A random encounter with a drag queen, thus, sets a new course in motion.Read more ›
