Muriel’s Wedding

It’s funny, it’s sad, it’s dark, it’s surburban, it’s about the underdog. These are all reasons why Muriel’s Wedding is my favourite film and why for me, it works on so many levels. It’s clever beyond being a straightforward comedy. I love that it is so understated and that it’s the characters and dialogue that drive the story. There are also a lot of issues under the surface of the film which make it much more complex. And it’s got some fantastic one-liners….“You can’t stop progress!”
