Watched this film yesterday as a classic "What should I watch on Netflix on a Sunday" kind of day. It did not disappoint. I now have dreams about traveling to Australia to dress as a man dressing as a woman in the desert riding on a big pink bus. It would be great fun. If you have not seen this film, you should.
"I have a dream".
Two drag-queens, Mitzi (Hugo Weaving) and Felicia (Guy Pearce), and a transexual, Bernadette (Terrence Stamp) contract to perform a drag show at a resort in Alice Springs, a resort town in the remote Australian desert. They head west from Sydney aboard their lavender bus, Priscilla. When they arrive they discover that it is more than just a cabaret job waiting for them. It's the Australian film that blitzed overseas box offices. It caused a near riot at the Cannes Film Festival. It won an Academy Award for Best Costume Design. It's fun, daring, over-the-top and unforgettable. It's a road movie with attitude and the occasional frock.
