At first I did not think I was going to enjoy this film despite the fact that I love Alan Cumming. I had no idea he could sing so well!! Thought Garret Dillahunt largely phoned in his role - not as strong as Alan. Heartbreaking story. Recommend. Kristi & Abby Tabby

Hopefully we've come a little ways from this. It's absolutely wonderful, dreadful, don't look for a happy ending. But their honesty, their trials and tribulations, their willingness to stick together given the bias, prejudice, the lies; they had each other and each grew and garnered strength in that bond.

An absolutely wonderful yet heart-wrenching movie. I defy you not to be deeply moved by this film.

Forget the "Gay film" labels---and bring your open mindset and a willing heart to view a unique and loving film that will reach anyone who is still remotely HUMAN.

The story and the acting is sublime.

Magnifique.

This is the only movie in memory, I believe, to have ever made me cry. A movie from the library that I could finally relate to, on many of the subjects it brought up. Resonated with my life and brought tears to my eyes. A beautiful, highly recommendable film.

A well-made film, with excellent performances all around; yes, it's a bit of a tearjerker but it's not kitschy. It's sad that we're still debating these issues.

It’s West Hollywood, 1979, and female impersonator Rudy (Alan Cumming) is barely eking out a living doing drag shows at a local dive. Everything changes however when he meets Paul, a closeted lawyer with the DA’s office who falls madly in love with him after one blow job. Things become even more interesting when the new couple then try to adopt Marco, a 14-year old child with Down’s Syndrome whose negligent crackhead mother has just been sent to prison on drug charges. Unfortunately, despite being loving parents who have proved their worth, Rudy and Paul quickly find themselves having to contend with rampant homophobia both in their private lives and from the court system. As the powers that be try to wrest Marco away from them forever they turn to one maverick attorney, himself a minority, to appeal their case. But will love be enough to reunite this happy family? Let’s see now...a wisecracking drag queen with a heart of gold, a jive-talking black attorney, a mentally handicapped kid with a winning smile (he likes doughnuts!! Awww!!), and the usual assortment of boorish hetero assholes; is there any clichéd stereotype this movie doesn’t exploit? Add to that some tired old sermonizing and courtroom histrionics and you’re left with one of those heartwarming gay films that straight audiences love to lap up. Mawkish, manipulative, and as phoney as Cumming’s New York accent.
