Watch Female Trouble
Female Trouble is a 1974 comedy satire film. It was directed by John Waters, noted for his sharp commentary and satire of Western culture, especially regarding gender politics. Drag-queen star Divine plays Dawn Davenport, whose life we follow from high school to adulthood. Along the way she is denied material comfort by her parents, runs away from home, gets victimized by predators on the street, gets pregnant, and veers towards a life of crime. The film plays hard and fast with concepts of taste, choosing to confront us with trashy, gritty reality sent up in a humorous manner.
