Throw the Pope of Trash some studio money and you’ll get what may look like a cute musical but is actually freaky homage to ‘50s teen exploitation films and an unabashed celebration of nonconformity. So it goes with Cry Baby, John Waters well-funded Romeo and Juliet inspired tale of of a town turned upside-down by the love affair between a delinquent and a square. A never prettier Johnny Depp (in his first starring role) helms an all-star cast of queer icons and Dreamlanders including Ricki Lake, Traci Lords, Susan Tyrrell, Mink Stole and Iggy Pop.
