Movie Info

Young, chubby Harris Glenn Milstead liked musicals, was drawn to feminine pursuits, and was bullied. He was privately playing "dress-up games" in his mother's clothes. By 1963, Glenn was brave enough to show up at a party with his then girlfriend dressed as an astonishingly passable Elizabeth Taylor, among the many glamorous stars he openly idolized.

Audience Reviews for I Am Divine

  • Aug 22, 2015
    This is an efficient and enjoyable documentary about the life and career of John Waters' muse of filth, even though it feels excessively reverential and has a structure that is a bit too conventional - which seems pretty ironic, considering the unconventional subject in question.

    Interesting documentary, just not as probing as I would've preferred. The film is extremely biased in its approach to Divine's life, trying its hardest to ignore the fact that Divine wasn't everyone's cup of tea. The late drag queen was an extremely intriguing figure of cinema however, so the documentary holds your attention nonetheless, but if you're looking for a more raw account of the star then you need not apply.

    A thorough and compassionate exploration of an enigmatic yet wonderfully eccentric individual, I Am Divine has plenty to say about identity, fame, and self-respect.

    The life of Glen Milstead, from a chunky effeminate nerd who got beat up at school to the iconic, outrageous and obscene 300 lb drag queen Divine, the main attraction in John Waters' transgressive early comedies. The reverential interviews and clips meet, but don't exceed, your expectations for a documentary about Divine.
