Butch Jamie

Director: Michelle Ehlen

2007 USA 84mins

Butch Jamie is a quirky, gender-bending comedy about an out-of-work lesbian actor willing to try almost anything for a role. Dressing as ‘Femme Jamie’ for auditions, struggling actress Jamie Klein continually faces rejection as she fails to be a typical leading lady. Spurred on by her roommate Lola, Jamie decides to take a different approach and audition as herself – ‘Butch Jamie.’ This ends up landing her a part as a man. The plot thickens as Jamie unintentionally sparks the interests of Jill, a sexy straight woman on the set. Butch Jamie is that rarest of treats – a clever, funny and heartwarming lesbian rom-com.
