The Boy in the Dress DVD

Directed by Matt Lipsey



Billy Kennedy stars in this made-for-TV adaptation of David Walliams' children's book.

Despite being the star striker on his school's football team, 12-year-old Dennis Sims (Kennedy) feels out of place at school and still misses the mother who left left him and his brother John (Oliver Barry-Brook) after divorcing their dad (Steve Speirs).

When aspiring fashion designer and fellow classmate Lisa (Temi Orelaja) recruits him to model a dress for her, Dennis decides to wear it to school and adopts the guise of a French girl named Denise but is quickly found out and expelled by his strict head teacher.

But with the school's football team on a downward spiral without him, Dennis and Lisa try to come up with a creative scheme to get him back in school and back on the team.
