West Branch Pride Movie Night

Please join us for another free West Branch Pride movie night with a showing of “Victor/Victoria.”

This 1982 (yes, 1982!) has it all – drag, transgender and out gay characters! It’s stars a woman (Julie Andrews as Victoria Grant) playing a man who plays a woman. She’s a down-and-out British soprano who struggles to find work in the nightclubs of 1930’s Paris. While trying to scam a free meal, Grant meets gay cabaret performer Toddy (Robert Preston), who comes up with an idea that will change everything. Acting as her manager, Toddy bills Grant as a male female impersonator. When the nightclubs eat it up, the duo makes it big – even a Chicago mobster (James Garner) is enamored with Grant. But keeping the truth a secret is no easy task.

On Rotten Tomatoes, “Victor/Victoria” holds an approval rating of 97%. The site’s critical consensus reads, “Driven by a fantastic lead turn from Julie Andrews, Blake Edwards’ musical gender-bender is sharp, funny and all-round entertaining.” Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times wrote: “Not only a funny movie, but, unexpectedly, a warm and friendly one. “Todd McCarthy of Variety called it “sparkling, ultra-sophisticated entertainment from Blake Edwards.”

This film was nominated for multiple Academy Awards including Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Screenplay, Best Art Direction, Set Decoration, Best Costume Design, Best Original Song and Julie Andrews won the Golden Globe Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy
