The Birdcage



In this contemporary American adaptation of the 1978 outrageous French farce LA CAGE AUX FOLLES, the story centers on the life of a middle-aged, flamboyant gay couple…Armand and Albert…in the eclectic community of South Beach, Florida, who have raised a straight son. The son announces his engagement to the daughter of a right-wing U.S. senator, and wants to bring his fiancee and her ultraconservative parent’s home to meet his family for the first time. What choice is there but to accept his decision with love? So Armand and Albert must pretend to be very straight by attempting to play out the roles of your typical heterosexual “husband” and “wife”. Of course, as they dig themselves deeper into the deception, the funnier the situations!

  3. I love this movie…but the TV version has a scene at 41:41 that the theatrical version left out. It introduces a bit character (the beer delivery guy) that has a little heart-to-heart with Armand. I think it's really unfortunate that that scene isn't included, because it breaks down the reason for Armand's change of heart – your love for your children is so vast that, at the expense of yourself, you'll do anything for your kids.
