A feel-good film with abundant charm and humor, “Tucked” offers insight into the evolving understanding of gender identity across generations. When 80-year-old drag queen Jackie Collins (Derren Nesbitt) receives a bleak diagnosis — he has only six weeks to live — all he wants to do is perform his long-running act and behave as if everything is perfectly normal. But between a surprising new friendship with a rising young queen (Jordan Stephens) and unfinished business with his estranged daughter (April Pearson), Jackie may just have the most eventful month-and-a-half of his life. A moving exploration of love, loss, and the true meaning of friendship, “Tucked” won both the audience award and the jury prize for best international film at last year’s Outfest in LA. Mesmerizing lead Nesbitt has enjoyed a decades-long career on British television and, in younger days, appeared in such Hollywood films as “The Naked Runner,” where he co-starred with Frank Sinatra, and “Where Eagles Dare,” where he memorably faced off against Clint Eastwood and Richard Burton.
