The Prom: Directed by Ryan Murphy. With Meryl Streep, James Corden, Nicole Kidman, Kerry Washington. A troupe of hilariously self-obsessed theater stars swarm into a small conservative Indiana town in support of a high school girl who wants to take her girlfriend to the prom.
Director Ryan Murphy did a fantastic job at pairing two different types of America: the glittery hollywood stereo types with way too much screen smoothing and the down home towns where high school sports are when most residents hit their peak. There’s huge name stars and the film is fun, but didn’t leave an indelible mark on my soul.
