New York Times -
"...[Fierstein] emerges as an enjoyably wise-cracking figure....Lively and amusing detail..."

Product Description:

The funny and poignant story of an aging drag queen's hilarious attempts to find domestic bliss with everyone from a school teacher to a tolerant young male model. The greatest challenge for Arnold in this adaptation of Harvey Fierstein's Broadway play is his complicated relationship with his mother.

Plot Synopsis:

This film adaptation of Harvey Fierstein's Tony award-winning 1982 play follows ten years (1971-81) in the life of middle-aged homosexual Arnold Beckoff. The film opens as Arnold encounters Ed in a gay bar. Although Ed bluntly and immediately announces his bisexuality, Arnold can't help but feel betrayed when he later catches Ed with a woman.
Arnold then falls hopelessly in love with a young, handsome ex-hustler named Alan. The two start a relationship strong enough to survive Alan's infidelity. But tragedy intervenes, destroying the couple's hope for happiness and leaving Arnold in despair.
In the film's final segment, Arnold has become an adoptive father, a role that requires many adjustments in his life. In addition, he wants desperately to repair his relationship with his overbearing mother -- a task easier said than done.
