Female Trouble

Female Trouble

Divine portrays Dawn Davenport from her bad-girl youth as a go-go dancer on Baltimore's infamous Block to her death in the electric chair. Mary Vivian Pearce and David Lochary co-star as crazed owners of a beauty-parlor who are convinced that "crime equals beauty," and they take Dawn under their wings, forcing her to mainline liquid eyeliner to enhance her appeal. Edith Massey steals the film as Dawn's obsessive neighbor, Ida, who wants her nephew to be gay (because heterosexuals lead "sick and boring lives") and throws acid in Dawn's face when she marries him.
  • Rated NC17 for explicit sexuality and nudity.
