La cage aux folles

Directed by Édouard Molinaro
Italy, France, 1978
Comedy, LGBT+


A breakout art-house smash, Edouard Molinaro’s La Cage aux Folles inspired a major Broadway musical and a blockbuster remake. But with its hilarious performances and ahead-of-its-time social message, there’s nothing like the audacious, dazzling original movie.
