Feeling down about the possibility that Santa won’t bring you Cha-Cha heels for Christmas this year? Never fear, delinquent Dawn Davenport (Divine) is here to live out the bizarre and beautiful life of crime you can only fantasize about. Female Trouble is yet another John Waters classic, a grotesque examination of the female condition and cycles of violence presented through the flashy and trashy lens of the Pope of Filth. There’s a reason Waters himself considers this his favorite of his early work, and why Mink Stole has named Taffy Davenport as her favorite role in Dreamland. “Hey, spare me your morals!” and give yourself over to violence and perversion.
