“Like ''La Cage aux Folles,'' ''Torch Song Trilogy'' presents a homosexual world that any mother, with the possible exception of Arnold Beckoff's, would love. Greatly shortened from Mr. Fierstein's long-running, Tony Award-winning play, the film version emphasizes the lovable at every turn, but the surprise is that it does this entertainingly and well.”
Janet Maslin, The New York Times

“As written and performed by Harvey Fierstein as a long-running stage hit, it was seen as a sort of nostalgic visit to the problems that gays had in the years before the horror of AIDS. The movie has more or less the same focus, but because it's a movie, it becomes more intimate and intense.”

  1. :

    Torch Song Trilogy is an emotional ride from start to finish is has a great cast such. It tells the human story of love and the never ending search for it. Its not just about drag queens and gay people it is a multi-layered story of people trying to find what makes them happy and the journey the main character Arnold goes through, This is a powerful film that breaks down the barriers of homophobia and religion and colour.
    You will laugh, cry and you will come away from seeing this movie with the feeling that everything will be ok with the world that Arnold lives in and perhaps it may give some people hope. For me its made me want bunny slippers.
