Muriel's Wedding

106' - 1994 - Drama, Comedy - Dialogue: English
Director: P.J. Hogan Composer: Peter Best With: Toni Collette, Richard Griffiths, Bill Hunter
Muriel Heslop is an outsider in a strange place. Porpoise Spit, the oppressively ordinary seaside resort where she lives with her large family, is a suburban wonderland of shopping malls, marine parks and Tupperware parties. Living in a fantasy world of Abba songs and bridal catalogues, Muriel waits for Prince Charming to come along and rescue her from her bullying father, her bitchy girlfriends and the claustrophobic atmosphere of small town morality. But when Prince Charming is slow to arrive, Muriel decides to take control of her own destiny and heads for the bright lights of Sydney to find him for herself.
