“I hate you, I hate this house and I hate Christmas!” All that Dawn Davenport (Divine) wants for Christmas is a pair of cha-cha heels. When Santa fails to deliver, she embarks on a path of felony and depravity that ultimately leads to an electrifying demise. Never funnier, Waters still revels in trash, but embraces narrative coherence as never before, and with a dazzling performance by his plus-size diva Divine, crafts a moving piece of melodrama about American society’s sordid underbelly.
