A groundbreaking critical and commercial success and longtime cult classic, Outrageous! put filmmaker Richard Benner and drag sensation Craig Russell on the map. Russell plays Robin, a Toronto hairdresser by day and aspiring stage performer by night who provides room, board and emotional refuge for his schizophrenic friend (Hollis McLaren). Just below the film’s camp and quip-filled surface lies a hard-hitting and resonant drama. Russell’s performance, both on and off stage, is truly inspired, and earned him a Silver Bear from the Berlin Film Festival.
