The late, great Cloris Leachman delivers one of her finest film roles in this moving, critically-acclaimed comedy-drama from director Phil Connell.
Jump, Darling follows Russell (Thomas Duplessie), an up-and-coming drag performer who, on the run from his boyfriend and a stressful life in the city, escapes to the country and into the arms of Margaret, his aging grandmother (Leachman). As Margaret fights to retain her independence and avoid being put in a home, Russell decides to move in and help. He also takes to the stage once more, using a local bar to showcase his glamorous skills and strike up a new romance with an attractive bartender.
An award-winning film festival hit with humor and heart to spare, Jump, Darling is a true must-see about love, family and maintaining your dignity – no matter what your age is.
