The life and times of Dawn Davenport, showing her progress from loving schoolgirl to crazed mass murderer – all of which stems from her parents’ refusal to buy her cha-cha heels for Christmas. She runs away from home, is raped, becomes a single mother, criminal and glamorous model before her inevitable rendezvous with the electric chair…
“Female Trouble” is one of John Water’s best movies, probably the best of his pre-respectable (read: pre-“Hairspray”) flicks. Posessing a much more strong (and bizarre) plotline than the also brilliant “Pink Flamingos”, “Female Trouble” documents the exploits of Dawn Davenport, a horrible juvenial delinquent turned criminal played by the unbeatable Divine.
This was Water’s last film to features his entire original ensemble of actors (Divine, David Lochary, Mink Stole, Mary Vivian Pierce, and Edith Massey) and each has a memorable and hilarious role. Stole steals the show as Dawn’s “retarded” 14 year old daughter, but Edith Massey is also great as Aunt Ida, who constantly urges her nephew Gator to turn gay (“The world of the heterosexual is a sick and boring life!”).
The scene where Dawn hits Ida on the head with a fish is worth the whole price of admission. Recommended!!!
