Considered by many to be director John Waters' Citizen Kane, Female Trouble is the sublimely sordid saga of Dawn Davenport (Divine), a teenager who goes from loving schoolgirl to mass murderer, all because her parents won't buy her "cha cha" heels for Christmas. She runs away from home and becomes a single mother, criminal and glamorous model, all before her inevitable execution in the electric chair. Another vile, gross, hysterically funny film from the director of Pink Flamingos.
