The Screen Guide

CARLOTTA is based on the extraordinary life of iconic Les Girls headliner and Australian transgender pioneer, Carlotta. Spanning forty years of groundbreaking social and sexual upheaval, Carlotta lays bare the life of the sexually confused teenager Richard Byron and his flight from a neglectful and abusive household into the turbulence of the hedonistic Kings Cross of the sixties and seventies. We witness the birth of the transsexual underworld against the threat of criminal prosecution as well as social rejection and with it, the emergence of the all conquering drag queen and performer, Carlotta.
