How many working class Aussie boys grow up to be showgirls? Based on the extraordinary life of the iconic Les Girls headliner and Australian transgender pioneer, Jessica Marais (Magic City, Packed to the Rafters) stars as Carlotta. Long before Australians knew what a transsexual was, Carlotta was pushing the boundaries of gender and sexuality. She was an ambassador for rebellion, freedom, and self-expression: a living, breathing symbol of emerging 60s liberalism. A universal story about identity, family, tolerance and acceptance, Carlotta lays bare the life of the confused teenager named Richard and his flight into the turbulence of the hedonistic sixties and seventies. Against the threat of criminal prosecution as well as social rejection, Carlotta emerges as the all conquering drag queen and performer. Spanning forty years, Carlotta is an uplifting celebration of finding your place in the world and making your mark against all odds.
