A filthy year

2014 is guaranteed to be simply Divine

You can keep your Katharine Hepburns and your Ryan Goslings. There's only one star of the big screen for me.

"She was simultaneously sexy and monstrous. Is she gonna screw me or eat me?" That's right . . . she is Divine.

Starting the year off right, Toronto finally gets a screening of I Am Divine, a documentary by Jeffrey Schwarz and Automat Pictures, featuring all the characters from the life of Divine (aka Harris Glenn Milstead). Learn how she grew from an effeminate child of conservative Baptist parents in Baltimore into a larger-than-life superstar.

It's been almost 26 years since we lost Divine, but she lives on as an icon, iconoclast and fabulous anti-role model. Don't miss this amazing opportunity to relive the glamour . . . and terror!
