Muriel's Wedding

An ugly duckling from a dysfunctional family yearns for a happier life, and starts on that road by leaving her home town of Porpoise Spit for Sydney, in the company of her fast track girlfriend. Not the simple, straight-ahead 'feel good' movie you might expect, but a darker, more idiosyncratic comedy-drama full of wonderful performances and a must for ABBA fans.
