BFI Flare always brings us the best in LGBTQ+ film and this year’s online film festival certainly delivered.

In this Boys On Film review, Phil, Raj and Sean take on the opening night film – Jump, Darling starring the late Cloris Leachman and Thomas Duplessie.

From IMDB: A rookie drag queen, reeling from a break-up, escapes to the country, where he finds his grandmother in steep decline yet desperate to avoid the local nursing home.

Jump, Darling is a lovely gay film set to the soundtrack of Robyn, Allie X, Years and Years, Scissor Sisters and London Grammar

With an incredible pop soundtrack and touching performances, Jump, Darling highlights the relationship with a drag queen and his sometimes grouchy, but endearing grandmother.

With mixed reviews from your Boys On Film judys, Jump, Darling may not be for everyone, but if you’re a gay boy who deeply loves his grandma, this film will certainly tug on your heartstrings – especially if you love a good Robyn moment in film.

RIP Cloris Leachman and thank you for leaving us with this fantastic film.

Jump, Darling was already released in Canada, but look for it to hit PVOD in the UK and US sometime soon.
