In Memoriam: Tab Hunter (1931-2018): Frustrated housewife Francine Fishpaw (Divine) tries to maintain her sanity while taking care of her dysfunctional household. Elmer (David Samson), her husband and the owner of an adult theater, is sleeping with his secretary, and her delinquent teen son, Dexter (Ken King), and pregnant teen daughter, Lulu (Mary Garlington), aren't helping matters any. But when Francine meets dashing Todd Tomorrow (Tab Hunter), the owner of a theater specializing in art films, her life appears rosier.
“John Waters' Baltimore brand of lunacy occupies a special place in the hearts of a lot of midnite movie maniacs and everyone has their own favorite. POLYESTER is his most satisfying film from a perspective of mixing storytelling, characters, and outrage.” —Gil Jawetz, DVD Talk
