“I hope it provides a way back to some normalcy,” Murphy told Variety. “This is the prom we all get to have this year. It celebrates movies and celebrates Broadway, and it comes at the end of a very hard year. I’m just incredibly thankful.”

In her feature film debut, Jo Ellen Pellman sees her role as “a once in a lifetime experience,” as she shares the screen with so many of Hollywood’s biggest stars.

Ariana DeBose, another star of the film, says it’s been a “wild year and is not something she’s taking lightly”.

Playing one of the very few roles of Latinx actors that are in the awards discussion this year, she says “I feel honoured to represent for Latinx and Queer representation.”

DeBose made an impression in July in Hamilton when it premiered on Disney Plus and was set to co-star in Steven Spielberg’s remake of West Side Story before it was moved to December 2021.

The film tells the story of Dee Dee Allen (Streep) and Barry Glickman (Corden) who are New York stage stars that have their careers flatlined after an expensive Broadway show flops.

When the two discover high school student Emma Nolan (Pellman), who has been banned from attending prom with her girlfriend Alyssa (DeBose), the two see a perfect opportunity to support a cause and resurrect their public image.

They recruit Angie (Kidman) and Trent (Rannells), another pair of cynical actors looking for a professional lift but their attempt at celebrity activism backfires and leaves the four of them on their own in throwing the best bash they can for Emma.

The musical sees Kidman and Streep reunited on-screen for the third time.

They previously worked together in The Hours. And last year, appeared in Season 2 of Big Little Lies, where Streep played Kidman’s nosy mother-in-law, who turned their lives around.

The pair both received Golden Globe nominations for their roles in the TV drama by Australian author Lorraine Moriarty. Steep also scored an Emmy nomination for the show.

The Prom is a part of Netflix’s robust arsenal of awards contenders this year, though no official category campaigns have been confirmed for its cast.

It’s set to on the streaming platform on December 11.
