You can watch this remake of a beloved West End musical on Amazon Prime now

It’s a hit, and you don’t even know it.

Since making its way onto the West End in 2017, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie has become an instant fan favourite. The coming of age tale follows Jamie New, a sixteen year old facing discrimination and bullying for his sexuality in his hometown of Sheffield. Despite this, he has big dreams and knows his place is on the stage. With the help of his loving mum and supportive friends, he steps out of the darkness and into the spotlight. It’s heartwarming, it’s uplifting, and it’s gas in all the right places.

If this sounds like your vibe, the film adaption of this multi award winning musical is now available on Amazon Prime.

I’ll be very surprised if you can get through that trailer without at least one tear seeping out.

It’s the perfect watch for anyone looking for a wee cry, uplifting moments, and a catalogue of catchy tunes. It also features our own Sharon Horgan (This Way Up, Catastrophe) as Jamie’s careers teacher so, you know, do it for the Irish.

Cut to all of us listening to “And You Don’t Even Know It” on repeat once we return to the morning commute.
