About
(Michael Patrick Jann, US, 1999, 97 min, in English)

A cutthroat beauty pageant in the heart of Minnesota where the stakes are high and the competition is deadly. Its like Miss Congeniality meets Final Destinationbut with way more hairspray.
The criminally underrated Drop Dead Gorgeous is a mockumentary-style dark comedy that follows a group of wannabe high school beauty queens competing in the Sarah Rose Cosmetics Mount Rose American Teen Princess Pageant. When a series of mysterious accidents start to eliminate the contestants, the girls eternally upbeat Minnesotan attitudes get put to the test. Can they continue to force positivity after a person poisons the queens? Or when someone gets stuck inside a burning pyre?

Released in 1999 and brilliantly written by Lona Williams, a beauty pageant survivor herself (she was Minnesotas Junior Miss in 1985), the film stars a whos-who of famous actresses, including Kirsten Dunst, Brittany Murphy, Allison Janney, Denise Richards, Kirstie Alley, and Amy Adams, among others. Poorly received at its release, its grown a sizable cult following in the decades since, with top critics calling it their favorite movie. https://www.newyorker.com/culture/cultural-comment/drop-dead-gorgeous-which-is-finally-streaming-is-possibly-my-favorite-movie-of-all-time Now compared to dark comedy classics like Heathers or Election, Drop Dead Gorgeous has earned its place as one of the funniest movies of the 90s.

Accessibility

Ticketing, concessions, cinemas, restrooms, and our public edit lab are located on Northwest Film Forum's ground floor, which is wheelchair accessible. We have a limited number of assistive listening devices available for programs hosted in our larger theater, Cinema 1. These devices are maintained by the Technical Director, and can be requested at the ticketing and concessions counter. The Forum does NOT have assistive devices for the visually impaired, and is not (yet) a scent-free venue. Our commitment to increasing access for our audiences is ongoing, and we welcome all public input on the subject! If you have additional specific questions about accessibility at our venue, please contact our Patron Services Manager at maria@nwfilmforum.org
