DIRECTOR: JOHN WATERS

CAST: JOHNNY DEPP, MINK STOLE, TRACI LORDS, RICKI LAKE, IGGY POP

For his first lead role following television stardom, Johnny Depp teamed up with the Pope of Trash and turned out this riotous Romeo and Juliet-inspired celebration of 1950’s juvenile delinquent movies. The dreamy Depp, soul-singing and hip-shaking in the title role, is locked in an endless war with the preppie “squares” on the outskirts of Baltimore in a community of Waters’s Dreamlander regulars including Mink Stole, Traci Lords, and Ricki Lake, with Iggy Pop the patriarch of this delinquent “drape” population.
