Kinky Boots is a Golden Globe Award-nominated British-American comedy film written by Geoff Deane and Tim Firth, about a traditional Northamptonmarker shoemaker, based in Earls Bartonmarker, who turns to producing fetish footwear in order to save the failing family business and the jobs of his workers. The film is based on the story of Divine, which was featured in an episode of the BBC documentary series Trouble at the Top.


Charlie Price (Joel Edgerton) is trying to save the family business and travels to London to get ideas. In a chance encounter he meets sassy drag queen performer Lola (Chiwetel Ejiofor), the alter ego of Simon, and sees the possible market of shoes for male transvestites. With the styling eye of Lola, Charlie leads the traditional shoe factory to design and produce numerous shoes for the catwalk in Milan, Italymarker.



The film received average to poor reviews on release, with critics decrying the "formulaic britcom plot."

However it has since become something of a cult classic with reviews by audiences being far more generous.


A Broadway musicalmarker version of the film is in development, with producers Daryl Roth and Hal Luftig helming the project.
