Transgressive and ahead of its time, But I’m a Cheerleader is an inclusive tale of love and self-discovery. When her parents suspect that she's a lesbian, a high-school student (Natasha Lyonne) is sent to a sexual-rehabilitation camp. Based on director Jamie Babbit’s own experiences as well as ones she had read about, But I’m a Cheerleader playfully confronts the homophobic practice of conversion therapy. With Cathy Moriarty, Bud Cort, Melanie Lynskey, Clea DuVall. (US, 1999, 85min., English, R | Dir. Jamie Babbit)
