Inspired by the true story of a traditional English men's footwear factory in Northamptonshire which turned to production of kinky boots for transvestites in order to save the ailing family business and safeguard the jobs of the local community. This delightful cast, brings back to the screen an excellent, entertaining, funny, and heart felt movie likened to The Full Monty phenomenon
When you are a tall strapping man who dresses like a woman for a living, finding a pair of sexy but durable shoes can be worth your weight in gold. Lola (Chiwetel Ejiofor)--a drag queen also known as Simon--finds her shoe salvation in straight-laced Charlie Price (Joel Edgerton), who has inherited his father's shoe factory. Unable to pay the bills making traditional loafers and wingtips, Charlie agrees to make Lola a pair of kinky boots that turn out to be so fabulous the pair end up going into business together. They face a few obstacles, such as the bawdy union workers who aren't too keen on taking orders from a drag queen who's more of a man than they are. Then there's Charlie's posh real estate girlfriend, who wants to convert the factory into pricey condos. While the movie doesn't provide any real surprises (or even any scenes as suggestive as its title might suggest), the film (which is loosely based on a true story) is highly entertaining that will delight fans of both comedy and shoes. --Jae-Ha Kim

We shall certainly watch it again and again. It is now part of our "collection" of films with a "drag" theme. Thoroughly recommended.
This is not laugh out loud comedy, it is a humorous look at real life problems, a failing business, societies difficulty in accepting cross dressing, a dedicated work force suddenly lead in a direction they do not like.
The film is carried by the wonderful performance of Ejiofor (a very fine actor with a number of awards, catch up with him in "Dirty Pretty Things" and "Children of Men") as drag queen Lola who cross dresses in real life although we never learn anything about Lola's private life.
There are some great musical moments in the film, particularly the catwalk scene and the final cabaret club performance by Lola.
Very British, very entertaining and with a lot of depth.
