Variance Films presents You Don’t Nomi — a documentary following Paul Verhoeven’s salacious Showgirls, from disastrous release to cult adoration and extraordinary redemption.

A chorus of film critics and fervent devotees explore the complicated afterlife of 1995’s biggest film flop. The film features Adam Nayman (Vice Guide to Film), April Kidwell (I, Nomi) and Peaches Christ (Milk) along with archival footage and interviews with the cast and crew of Showgirls.
