Read what the critics are saying about our film.

“Beyond the personal stories, the movie frames the tour and “Truth or Dare” as landmarks in the push for gay rights and awareness, and makes a convincing case.”- Glenn Kenny, New York Times.

“…Ester Gould and Reijer Zwaan’s documentary is a cultural record of the highest importance, as it dares to give a serious treatment to presumably frivolous and feminine matters.” – Diego Semerene, Slant Magazine.

“Those terrific dancers who Vogued their way to brief stardom backing up Madonna are front and center in a warm and absorbing doc about their troupe and what went down post-Madge.” – David Noh, Film Journal.

“…focuses on male dancers who actually grabbed the gold, achieved world notoriety, and then fell by the wayside like broken figurines.” – Michael Musto, Paper Magazine.
