MIKE NICHOLS | USA | 1996 | 117 MIN
Longtime partners Armand and Albert Goldman (Robin Williams and Nathan Lane) are the owner and main attraction of wildly successful South Beach drag bar The Birdcage. When Armand’s son announces that his fiancée’s puritanical parents (Gene Hackman and Diane Wiest) are coming over for dinner, the Goldmans are forced to give their happily flamboyant life a conservative makeover. But is it possible to play it straight-laced in a household where even the housekeeper is an aspiring drag queen? This colorful comedy mixes madcap highjinks and witty banter with a surprisingly heartfelt look at love, acceptance, and the true meaning of family.
