Synopsis

One-time teen heartthrob Jason Donovan seems to have got a taste for dressing up in women's clothes. Not long after wowing theatre audiences with his rollicking performance as Frank N Furter in the West End revival of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, he's starring as a customs officer-cum-transvestite DJ in Sorted, the new film by Alexander Jovy.



Donovan stars alongside Matthew Rhys and Tim Curry (the original cinematic Frank N Furter) in the story of Carl (Rhys), an unworldly young lawyer from Scunthorpe who moves to London following the mysterious death of his brother, who, he discovers, was a successful lawyer by day and a rave fiend by night. Soon Carl is introduced to a world of sex, drugs and thumping house beats (provided by some of Europe's top names including Leftfield and Mauro Picotto), controlled by the sinisterly eccentric Damian (Curry). But Carl's new-found high is short-lived as he begins to unravel the mystery surrounding his brother's death.



Although Sorted and Human Traffic share a common setting -- the vibrant UK rave scene -- producer Mark Crowdy insists that Sorted is very different. "It's really not a gritty London club movie," he says. "We also wanted it to look spectacular so hired Mike Southon [RKO 281] to light the film, and did the post using electronic laboratory, which allows you to grade every single shot and gives you many more special effects for your money."



Metrodome will be releasing the film in the UK in October.
