'I am Divine'

The big question surrounding this documentary portrait of Baltimore's home-grown drag superstar Divine: How'd it take this long? Directed by Jeffrey Schwarz ("Vito"), the movie looks at John Waters' biggest star through archival footage and comments from key personalities, including Waters, Tab Hunter and Divine's mother. Given drag's current cultural cache (looking at you, "RuPaul's Drag Race"), expect this to be a revealing look at a drag legend.<br><br>
