Trailer Watch: An LGBTQ Teen Takes a Stand Against Her Conservative Town in “The Prom”

Review from USA Today:

After the year we’ve all had, Netflix’s glorious musical comedy “The Prom” couldn’t have come at a better time, with its monster-truck rallies, narcissistic A-listers, young lesbian protagonists and inclusiveness that will make any Grinch’s heart grow three sizes.

The joyous adaptation (★★★★ out of four; rated PG-13; streaming Dec. 11) of the Tony-nominated Broadway production lets Meryl Streep, James Corden and Nicole Kidman loose on catchy songs and sneakily complex characters. And in centering the emotional core on fresh faces like Ariana DeBose and newcomer Jo Ellen Pellman, director Ryan Murphy again finds the underdog vibe of “Glee” that captured pop culture’s imagination.

Instead of being preachy about acceptance and loving each other no matter our differences – though it does boast of one foot-stomping gospel hoedown in a mall – “The Prom” lets its infectious jubilance and lovable irreverence do the job.

Check out the trailer:

The film hits Netflix on December 11, right on time for some much-needed holiday cheer.
