Inspired by Jessica Pressler’s New York magazine profile about strippers who stole money from high profile clients, Hustlers features a truly stacked cast of women including Jennifer Lopez, Constance Wu, Keke Palmer, Lili Reinhart, Lizzo, Cardi B and Julia Stiles. With a soundtrack that includes iconic female artists like Janet Jackson, Britney Spears and Fiona Apple, Scafaria’s glam Goodfellas is fearlessly femme, tackling not only sexism in sex work but also the importance of friendships between women. Oh, and it’s technically a Christmas film for those who start celebrating come Nov. 1!
So put on your sparkliest bodysuit and join us on the main stage of the Revue Cinema on November 20 as we toast to Lorene Scafaria and all the leading ladies of Hustlers! Please note that WRLH! will be donating all profits from this screening to Maggie’s Toronto’s Black Sex Worker Emergency Survival Fund.
