Prepare yourself for FEMME, a gripping thriller set in the heart of London’s drag scene. Jules (Nathan Stewart-Jarrett, CANDYMAN), known for his dazzling performances as Aphrodite Banks, finds himself the target of a brutal homophobic attack. Though he survives and physically heals, the mental and emotional trauma leads him to withdraw from the scene and his friends.

Months later, by chance, he encounters his (closeted) assailant Preston (George MacKay, 1917) in a gay sauna. Befriending him, integrating into his social circle, and entering into a long-term relationship with him, Jules hatches the ultimate plan for revenge.

Directors Sam H. Freeman and Ng Choon Ping skillfully weave a tale of identity, gender, and sexual orientation, exploring and playing with the power of performance as both a survival mechanism and a tool for retribution. With standout performances by Stewart-Jarrett and MacKay, FEMME delivers a subversive cinematic experience you won’t soon forget.

“Revenge is rarely a tidy business. But Femme, a savagely sexy queer erotic thriller, explores just how messily complex retribution can be.” – Wendy Ide, Observer (UK)

“George MacKay and Nathan Stewart-Jarrett utterly thrill in this sexually charged, suspense-filled watch. Don’t let this one pass you by.” – Sophie Butcher, Empire Magazine
