Walt Koontz is a retired security guard, ultraconservative and proud of it, living in New York City’s Lower East Side. Late one night, while trying to help a neighbour in trouble, Walt suffers a stroke which leaves him with partial paralysis. Refusing to leave his apartment for therapy, Walt very reluctantly agrees to a rehabilitative program that includes singing lessons with a performer who lives upstairs -- a street-tough drag queen named Rusty. Staring Academy Award™ Winner Robert De Niro (Raging Bull, Analyze This) as Walt and Philip Seymour Hoffman (Boogie Nights, Happiness) as Rusty Zimmerman, Walt’s flamboyant neighbour, Flawless is written and directed by Joel Schumacher (Batman Forever, A Time To Kill, Falling Down).
