From The Beatles, to the Backstreet Boys and One Direction, I Used to be Normal: A Boyband Fangirl Story will take you back to the fun, fantasy and feelings of your teenage years. Filmed over four years, and spanning three generations, this intimate coming of age story follows a diverse group of women who have had their lives dramatically changed by their boyband obsessions. These four women must navigate the challenges of relationships, family, sexuality, and faith, while constantly grappling with all the problems and contradictions that are part of being in love with a boyband.
This film is the result of a five year collaboration between Director Jessica Leski and producer Rita Walsh. Rita has production credits on projects that include Casting Jon Benet (2017), Snowtown (2011), Bright Star (2009) and Mary & Max (2009).
