Sydney drag icon Maxi Shield stars in the wild new crime comedy The Winner Takes It All
Sydney drag icon and “RuPaul’s Drag Race: Down Under” alum Maxi Shield stars in this wild, sexually-charged new queer comedy which pays loving homage to the early films of John Waters.
Wealthy socialite Kiki (Jessica Marchi) confides in her best friend Maxine (Shield) that she believes her smoking-hot, ex-gigolo husband (singer and underwear model Manuel Kornisiuk) may be cheating. In danger of losing her rather large fortune, Kiki elicits Maxi’s help to uncover the truth about her husband’s adultery.
The ladies soon learn, however, that not all is as it seems. Throw in a sexy gay porn star (Jack Stratton-Smith) and non-stop lashings of camp and you are in for one of the funniest, filthiest and joyously stupid rides of your life.
From first-time director James Demitri, this transgressive new comedy has all the makings of a campy LGBTQ+ classic. DNA Magazine said “The Winner Takes It All is MAXI-mum fun!” The Queer Review called it “A deliberately, deliciously trashy comedy caper… gonzo, low-fi, colorful and incredibly stupid.”
