Featuring the acting talents of Richard E Grant (Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker), Sharon Horgan (Catastrophe), Sarah Lancashire (Happy Valley), Adeel Akhtar (Utopia), Ralph Ineson (The Ballad of Buster Scruggs) and newcomer Max Harwood in the title role, this one follows a 16-year-old who's adamant on wearing a dress to his high school prom.

Supported by his nearest and dearest, Jamie New undergoes a journey of self-discovery and finds his inner drag queen.

Meanwhile, Akhtar previously teased one of the movie's ginormous prom scenes.

"Warp Films put a shout out to everybody and they were expecting maybe 10,000 people. I want to say that close to 80,000 people turned up on that street.

"It was the last scene on top of this limo in the prom dress driving through all these people from Sheffield just cheering and screaming him on," he recalled.

"That summarises the experience of that film, for me".

Everybody's Talking About Jamie will begin streaming on Amazon Prime Video from September 17.
