Synopsis

Comedy-drama from director Julian Jarrold based on actual events in the UK town of Northampton. Charlie Price (Joel Edgerton), owner of the traditional men's footwear factory that has survived in his family for generations, faces the imminent closure of his beloved business which would have a severe impact on the employment prospects of local people. That is, until a chance meeting with flamboyant cabaret act Lola (Chiwetel Ejiofor) convinces him that, to stay afloat, his company's footwear range will have to branch out. Turning out stylish kinky boots for transvestites like Lola and her colleagues is not quite what he had in mind.
