"These boots are made for walking, and that's just what they'll do. But one of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you..." - Nancy Sinatra

If you loved Calendar Girls and The Full Monty, you'll love Kinky Boots, directed by Julian Jarrold. Kinky Boots is another film in the genre of British films with quirky, rural characters doing something outrageous. In The Full Monty it was a group of laid off guys doing well, the full monty; in Calendar Girls it was a group of older women shedding their clothes and inhibitions to make a fundraising calendar. In Kinky Boots, we have a reluctant heir to a shoe factory owner who decides to save his family's factory from shutting down by switching the company's product from reliable, well-made English brogues to reliable, well-made, sexy boots - for drag queens and transexual men.

The film stars Joel Edgerton (Star Wars: Episodes Two and Three) as Charlie Price, who takes over the shoemaking factory that has been in his family for four generations after the sudden death of his father, and Chiwetel Ejiofor (Melinda and Melinda, Red Dust, Love Actually) as Lola the drag queen, who helps save Charlie's factory by desiging the sexiest boots the quiet burg of Northampton has ever seen. Rounding out the cast are Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead) as Don, a factory worker who takes an instant dislike to Lola, Sara-Jane Potts as Lauren, the feisty factory worker who makes Charlie believe in himself, and Calendar GirlLinda Bassett.

When Charlie takes over the factory, he soon learns the large order of brogues they are working on has been canceled, and the factory is in dire financial straits. He is forced to make 15 employees redundant, but Lauren challenges his complacency by telling him to stop asking "what can I do" and saying "it's not my fault", and find a way to save the factory.
