Kinky Boots

Kinky Boots is a British film that my wife and I recently rented from those lovely "Red Box" locations for a cool two bucks...because we forgot to return it the first day.

The film is a comedy-drama about a classical shoe company that recently got taken over by a son who didn't quite know what he was doing...or want to know. He's thrust into running the company that had been dying for years. He looks for a niche market to try to bring in new revenue. What does he find? Women's boots for men who dress as women.

It's an amusing film that tackles some interesting and serious issues. It's also loosely based on a true story, which makes it evevn more interesting to me. My wife and I both enjoyed the movie and I would suggest it to anyone.
