Kinky Boots Arrives On Blu-ray For The First Time

Over fifteen years after the film’s 2006 theatrical release, the hilarious Kinky Boots makes its arrival on Blu-ray for the first time.

This is the original British film that would go onto inspire the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical of the same name. It is also based on a true story. Critically speaking, the film plays it too close to The Full Monty formula when it comes to British comedies. Chiwetel Ejiofor’s performance received a few honors during awards season. Regarding the Paramount home release, there are no new bonus features. All of the bonus content had been previously released. However, the Blu-ray comes with a digital copy.

SYNOPSIS
