Did you know? A documentary by Jeffrey Schwartz called, "I AM DIVINE" debuts digitally April 1, 2014 and will be on DVD April 8, 2014.

Basically the documentary has been described at "The True Story of the Most Beautiful Woman in the World," the irony of the story according to the infamous John Waters is the fact that she's a man." You should know the new release will include lots of bonus materials including commentary and over 30 minutes of deleted scenes from the film's original production.

Here's what film critics are saying about the film:

(4 stars) “Terrific footage from behind the scenes (including the end of “Pink Flamingos”) helps make this recollection funny, full and sad.” ~ NEW YORK DAILY NEWS

“…fascinating, expertly directed, wonderfully paced, lovingly produced tribute documentary.” ~ EDGE LOS ANGELES

“There will never be another Divine. 25 years later and no one has come close to filling her infamous cha-cha heels. This documentary shows you why.” ~ POPMATTERS

The film is said to be packed with great interviews and clips, this dynamic, fun and often poignant portrait of the legendary Divine brings to life a complex understanding of Baltimore native John Waters’s favored muse.

According to press specs, I AM DIVINE is the story of Divine, aka Harris Glenn Milstead, from his humble beginnings as an bullied Baltimore youth to internationally recognized drag superstar through his partnership/friendship with filmmaker John Waters.

"Spitting in the face of the status quos of body image, gender identity, sexuality, and preconceived notions of beauty, Divine was the ultimate outsider turned underground royalty. With a completely committed in-your-face style, he blurred the line between performer and personality, and revolutionized pop culture. I AM DIVINE is a definitive biographical portrait that charts the legendary icon’s emotional complexities and rise to infamy."

You should know the "I AM DIVINE" DVD will retail for $24.95. For more about the film including purchasing information click here. Be sure to follow the filmmakers on Twitter at @divinemovie and Wolfe Video on Facebook and Twitter at @WolfeVideo.
