Format: DVD
Even if these boots aren't exactly made for walking, they do look stylish. Charlie Price (Joel Edgerton) must take over the family shoe business when his father dies. He discovers that the company is failing badly. He finds salvation of sorts when he meets drag queen and cabaret singer Lola (Chiwetel Ejiofor from "Serenity" proving his versatility in this role). Lola complains about how the footwear she wears is so poorly designed. Lauren (Sarah-Jane Potts) a former employee has a brainstorm--goes into men's fetish footwear. In other words, women's shoes that men (whether they be drag queens or not) can wear. Suddenly Charles has a niche market to work with and success comes unexpectedly comes knocking at his door. Unfortunately Charles must deal with his fiancé's (Jemima Rooper) disapproving attitude and the prejudice of his own employees before success can be fully his.

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.

"What can I do?" Charlie asks his employee, Lauren, when he's firing her. "The men's shoe market is gone."

"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.

How come British films seem to do more with less? Chiwetel Ejiofor is absolutely spot on in this upbeat, fun movie about trials and triumph. Of all his performances this one is my favorite. Ejiofor paints a realistic and empathetic picture of Drag Queens that will make you laugh and cry (well...maybe not cry). Get out the popcorn, sit back and enjoy because this one is a pleasure over and over again!

Heartwarming and full of personal courage, this is also a fun and wacky movie, based on a true story. The fashion runway scene at the Milan shoe show is worth the price of admission alone.

Personally, I found this movie absolutely delightful., And even more so since I discovered that it was based on a true story that has since become a bona fide Broadway hit, deservedly so. There is definitely something about British film productions like this one that is, far too often, lacking in Hollywood musical extravaganzas, and the name of that "something" is "charm". But the best part about it was, from the very beginning to, what was to me, a perfect finale, it left me chuckling and feeling good. While I can't say this about many movies these days, this one took me back to the pre-television days when I was just a ten year old kid because, in my opinion, it was just plain uncomplicated fun. Some cirtics have siad it was slow moving in parts, but I didn't find it so. The plot deals with what some people might consider a complicated adult theme involving a "drag queen somwhat reminiscent of Robin Williams in "The Birdcage". Again, I found it delightful and watching
it tomight was certainly an everning well spent.

The British seem to have the market cornered on a particular type of "feel good" film. In these films, a down-on-his-luck protagonist or group must face the inevitability of their current lifestyle predicament and do something completely unorthodox in order to survive. There is a certain wackiness, however, with what they choose. It's by embracing this unknown and unpredictable new world that our heroes will find redemption, success, and learn to live again. From stripping steelworkers, to gardening prisoners, to calendar posing matrons, to marijuana growing widows, to a coal mining brass band--these films share a formula that rarely varies, but usually succeeds on charm if not originality. The other thing these films have in common is that they are "inspired" by true stories. (And let's make the distinction, they aren't "based" on real life. The films are not factual, they take an idea from the real world and transform it into a very fictional format!) "Kinky Boots" is one of the latest incarnations to join this particular sub-genre of British comedy.

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.
