THE BIRDCAGE is a 1996 American comedy film starring Robin Williams, Gene Hackman, Nathan Lane, and Dianne Wiest. The plot revolves around a gay cabaret ownner and his drag queen companion who agree to put up a false straight front so that their son can introduce them to his fiancee’s right-wing moralistic parents. It is a remake of the 1978 Franco-Italian film LA CAGE AUX FOLLES.
