It takes a lot of guts and a helluva sense of humor to live life in Arnold's shoes.
Tony Award-winning actor and playwright Harvey Fierstein recreates his role as the unsinkable Arnold Beckoff in this film adaptation of the smash Broadway play. Both funny and poignant, Torch Song Trilogy chronicles a New Yorkers' search for love, respect and tradition in a world that seems not especially made for him. Armed with a keenly developed sense of humor and piercing wit. Arnold tests commonly accepted terms of endearment, and confirms that happiness is well worth carrying a torch for.
