It’s one of the all-time gay classic and perhaps the first international gay-themed mainstream hit – 1978’s La Cage Aux Folles. The movie is being released on Criterion Collection Blu-ray in the UK on April 2nd 2018 and we’ve got three copies to give away.
Renato (La grande bouffe’s UGO TOGNAZZI) and Albin (Diabolique’s MICHEL SERRAULT)—a middle-aged gay couple who are the manager and star performer at a glitzy drag club in St. Tropez—agree to hide their sexual identities, along with their flamboyant personalities and home decor, when the ultraconservative parents of Renato’s son’s fiancée come for a visit.
This elegant comic scenario kicks off a wild and warm-hearted farce about the importance of non-conformity and the beauty of being true to oneself. A modest French comedy that became a breakout art-house smash in America, EDOUARD MOLINARO’s La Cage aux Folles inspired a major Broadway musical and the blockbuster remake The Birdcage. But with its hilarious performances and ahead-of-its-time social message, there’s nothing like the audacious, dazzling original movie.
The new Criterion Collection edition also includes an array of special features.
