Director’s Cut of Jamie Babbit’s Queer Cult Classic Comes Out on Digital 4K Ultra HD December 8 from Lionsgate® in Celebration of 20th Anniversary, Featuring Never-Before-Seen Deleted Scenes

Celebrate the 20th Anniversary of “the best lesbian movie of all time” (Riese Bernard, Autostraddle) when But I’m a Cheerleader: Director’s Cut arrives on Digital 4K Ultra HD December 8 from Lionsgate. From Primetime Emmy® Award-nominated director Jamie Babbit (2017, Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series, “Silicon Valley”), the film features an all-star cast including Golden Globe® nominee Natasha Lyonne (2020, Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy, “Russian Doll”), Screen Actors Guild Award® winner Clea DuVall (2018, Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series, “Veep”), Melanie Lynskey, Primetime Emmy® Award winner RuPaul Charles (2019, Outstanding Host for a Reality or Competition Program, “RuPaul’s Drag Race”), Eddie Cibrian, Golden Globe® nominee Bud Cort (1972, Best Actor – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy, Harold and Maude), Wesley Mann, Richard Moll, Douglas Spain, Katharine Towne, Golden Globe® winner Michelle Williams (2020, Best Actress in a Limited Series or Television Motion Picture, Fosse/Verdon), Oscar® nominee Julie Delpy (2013, Best Adapted Screenplay, Before Midnight), and Oscar® nominee Cathy Moriarty (1980, Best Supporting Actress, Raging Bull). Remastered in 4K and featuring never-before-seen deleted scenes, this is Jamie Babbit’s definitive director’s cut and original vision of the film.

“I uncovered some amazing lost scenes that I wasn't able to include in the original film and am so happy to see them added back into this cut. This film is so special to me and I can't wait for everyone to fall in love with it all over again,”
said director Jamie Babbit.

This whimsically edgy comedy, directed by Jamie Babbit, follows teenager Megan (Natasha Lyonne), whose suburban existence ?lled with friends, cheerleading, and all-American fun is upended when her straight-laced parents suspect she may be a lesbian. In a panic, they send her to True Directions, a “rehabilitation” camp run by the strict and prudish Mary (Cathy Moriarty), to mount an intervention led by counselor Mike (RuPaul Charles). Megan dutifully follows the program — until she develops feelings for another camper (Clea DuVall) in this timeless, satirical romantic-comedy about self-acceptance and love, also costarring Melanie Lynskey, Eddie Cibrian and Michelle Williams.
