A Wink and a Smile: The Art of Burlesque

2008 Rated NR 1hr 30m

In this titillating documentary, filmmaker Deirdre Allen Timmons takes her camera inside Seattle's Academy of Burlesque to shadow 10 ordinary women -- among them, a taxidermist, a housewife and a doctor -- who are learning the art of the striptease. Under the tutelage of the academy's sultry schoolmarm, Miss Indigo Blue, these budding burlesque dancers are shedding their inhibitions, along with their clothing, one tassel at a time.
