Jackie (Derren Nesbitt) is the undisputed queen of the over-eighties drag queens, lip-syncing and dropping acid wit in a Brighton club. When Faith (Jordan Stephens) arrives, they are keen to learn from the older queen about performance. But Jackie is taken on another journey by the younger queen, healing old family wounds while taking no prisoners from the stage.
A spirited and hilarious tribute to living life outside of society’s restrictions, Tucked is a showcase for 83 year old British character actor Derren Nesbitt (Victim, Where Eagles Dare), riffing against Jordan Stephens (Rizzle Kicks).
“The grainy intimacy of the photography compliments the abrasive stubble rub of these prickly, sometimes difficult characters.” ★★★ – Observer
“This feel-good comedy uses a cross-generational queer friendship to explore the nuances of gender in the drag world.” – indieWire
“Patterson’s film works some fresh variations on a familiar theme and benefits from two splendid performances.” – Hollywood Reporter
