Meryl Streep and Nicole Kidman star in trailer of The Prom
With an aesthetic that recalls and respects the setting created by Chad Beguelin and Bob Martin, The Prom tells a unique story of ambition and hope.
After their most recent stage work fails, actresses - and divas - "Angie Dickinson" (Nicole Kidman) and "Dee Dee Allen" (Meryl Streep) discover on television the story of a teenage girl from a small town who was banned from attending her prom with her girlfriend.
Determined to use the case to boost their fame, the stars and their theater company decide to move to the conservative town and raise their voices, unaware that their ambition and the desire for freedom for the young townspeople could cause something explosive.
