This is what is playing:
"Rudy Donatello is a struggling musician and drag performer in a gay nightclub in 1979 West Hollywood, where he meets Paul Fleiger, a closeted district attorney. Returning home to his apartment, Rudy finds Marco, a 14-year-old with Down syndrome, left alone after his mother, Marianna, had been arrested. Rudy takes in the abandoned boy, but Family Services intervenes and takes Marco to foster care. Rudy enlists Paul to help him gain custody of Marco and the two visit Marianna in prison to coax her into signing the temporary guardianship papers, which she does. All is well as Rudy and Paul become Marco's guardians, but when Rudy and Paul's relationship is called into question by the court system, the two men find themselves spiraling into a legal battle to become the legal and permanent guardians of the fascinating boy who showed them both the real joy of what it means to be a parent." WIKIPEDIA
This movie is inspired by a true story from the 1970's. It may be more common now to see gay parents adopt a child, but back then it was considered illegal. Unfortunately, the courts were not looking at what was best for the child, and let their closed-mindedness rule the case.
So get your popcorn ready....
and get ready to watch a moving, sometimes funny, often times sad, movie. I give it 3 STARS!!
