People can celebrate the 20th anniversary of a classic lesbian film when But I'm a Cheerleader: Director's Cut arrives on Digital 4K Ultra HD on Dec. 8, from Lionsgate.
From Primetime Emmy-nominated director Jamie Babbit ( 2017, Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series, Silicon Valley ), the film features a cast including Natasha Lyonne, Clea DuVall, Melanie Lynskey, RuPaul Charles, Michelle Williams, Julie Delpy, Cathy Moriarty and more.
The unrated film follows teenager Megan ( played by Lyonne ), whose suburban existence filled with friends, cheerleading and all-American fun is upended when her straight-laced parents suspect she may be a lesbian. In a panic, they send her to True Directions, a "rehabilitation" camp run by the strict and prudish Mary ( Moriarty ), to mount an intervention led by counselor Mike ( Charles ). Megan dutifully follows the programuntil she develops feelings for another camper ( DuVall ).
The 20th Anniversary But I'm a Cheerleader: Director's Cut Digital 4K Ultra HD will be available for the suggested retail price of $9.99. It includes an audio commentary, a making-of featurette and "But I'm a Cheerleader Class Reunion," among other special features.
