Review of Victor Victoria
There is plenty of positive depiction of gay relationships, and the gay and cross-dressing characters aren't there to suggest decadence, as they are in other films of this genre (Cabaret comes to mind); they are just people with their own lives and loves.
I suspect the film was ahead of its time - it won several awards and was nominated for others, but I don't think it made much money.
Watched at home via Chromestream, having been obtained from those good old informal distribution networks.
