Kinky Boots

Last night I watched the 2005 Miramax movie Kinky Boots for the first time. I hadn’t heard of it until a customer asked me if I had seen it. I enjoyed it; it was funny, poignant, if not a bit over the top and predictable. In case you are not familiar with the story imdb.com has nice plot summary.

Many of the scenes were filmed in the Trickers factory in Northampton, which I enjoyed seeing. It also conveyed the sense of community among the residents and craftsman of Northampton and the effects of the economy on this once thriving industry.

Coincidentally I recently read that the movie is now being developed into a Broadway musical.
