Polyester stars Waters’s muse Divine as a suburban housewife whose life begins to unravel when she discovers her porno theater-owning husband is having an affair and her teenage daughter is pregnant. And that’s all before Tab Hunter enters the picture! The real star of the film, however, is Odorama. In an homage to the great B-movie showman William Castle, Waters created a scratch-and-sniff card which viewers are instructed to inhale at key points in the film. Dirty shoes! Pizza! Skunk! And worse. (86 mins., DCP)
