Drag queens with hairy armpits should be loved and adored...they offer no compromise - neither does this Fine and remarkable film.
Be prepared to laugh and cry...to experience happiness, sadness, anger and hurt.
Be prepared to scream at the screen...to yell, from the rooftops...to cry uncontrollably at the misery created by those without a shred of compassion or moral fibre.
Alan Cumming - the torch singer extraordinaire - delivers, in our humble opinion, the performance of his career...
Yes, it is theatrical...yes, it is sentimental and, yes...it will melt the hardest of hearts.
The only tragedy is that this film should have had a general release and seen by millions - it is films such as these that help change minds...towards that elusive pot-of-gold: equality for all.
Mr Fine - you have lived up to your name.
In the late 1970s, when a mentally handicapped teenager is abandoned, a gay couple takes him in and becomes the family he's never had. But once the unconventional living arrangement is discovered by authorities, the men must fight a biased legal system to adopt the child they have come to love as their own.
