This award-winning film opens a door into the amazing world of the Takarazuka Revue, the all-female theatre troupe in Japan. Thousands of young women aspire to perform in the Revue’s glitzy musical spectaculars and the millions of women who attend the shows idolise the romantic heroes like heart throb pop starts. 'Dream Girls' offers a compelling insight into gender and sexual identity and the contradictions experienced by Japanese women today.
