"A Timeless Classic - totally fabulous!!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I had forgotten just how GOOD this movie is, best “road trip” film of all time. Awesome soundtrack throughout brings back so many memories of my teenage dance parties- though to be honest I think Guy Pearce in drag is prettier than I ever was, and has way better legs! I love the themes in this movie – acceptance vs ignorance and bigotry. And the message is delivered with such flamboyance , endurance and joy that this film continues to captivate and entertain two decades after it was made. The costume designers and make-up artists all deserve Oscars themselves. Just fabulous and fun which can't fail to lift your spirits!

Australia has come of age with it's movies and being a theatre person, this was a hoot from start to finish. A send up, fast moving over the top romp from start to finish

Description

This Oscar-Winning (Best Costume) comedy won the hearts of movie goers partly for its lavish costumes and devotion to Abba, but mostly for the great performances of three drag artists who are on the road trip of a lifetime!

Stephan Elliott (EYE OF THE BEHOLDER) wrote and directed this tale of two drag queens and a transsexual that embark on a road trip to a remote resort town in the Australian desert on a bus christened Priscilla. When Anthony Tick'/Mitzi (Hugo Weaving) is invited to perform in Alice Springs, he recruits flamboyant young stud Adam/Felicia (Guy Pearce) and the legendary, refined Bernadette (Terence Stamp) to join him. Mitzi, however, fails to disclose one important fact to his friends: his wife is the one who invited them to Alice Springs. With one big secret about to be revealed and another one up his sleeve, Mitzi is a little stressed. With long hours on the road ahead of them, the trio lip-synchs campy songs on the bus, creates fabulous costumes, and meets a multitude of colourful characters along the way. They party with friendly aborigines, are confronted by judgmental townspeople who are averse to drag queens, and meet Bob (Bill Hunter), a warm hearted mechanic and drag fan who joins them for the last leg of their trip when their bus breaks down in the middle of nowhere. Fantastic costumes and fabulous makeup abound, and fine performances are delivered all around. But perhaps most important are the implicit messages that families come in all forms, that friends can make a family, and that love really knows no boundaries.
