seanoconnz’s review published on Letterboxd:
I don’t think a movie has ever made me as happy as this movie made me. It’s a fucking BIRTHDAY of a musical.
I always think of period films like Little Women and My Brilliant Career when I think of Gillian Armstrong. Well, something I didn’t know is that in between those two movies I love, she made one of the greatest musicals of all-time. Every song is a BANGER. I loved this movie so much.
It took awhile for me to get into it, because I will say that it’s aggressively Australian. But once it gets going, it doesn’t stop.
It’s streaming on Amazon Prime and I’m going to make it my life’s work to get people to watch this.
