a glorious celebration of freedom
i still remember joining the neighbors to go to the movies to see a new Australian film that noone knew much about, except that it featured the music of abba…just as i still remember walking out of the cinema aglow with such immense joy.
this is a wonderful film, that begins with a shy, needy, shrinking-violet girl and ends with a strong, honest woman aware of her own power to change and control the world around her. this film is full of laughs, full of smiles and, towards the crescendo of the last few minutes even full of tears. one can’t help but want to stand up and cheer, or dance, or both, as muriel escapes everything that her ‘life’ has pushed on her and rides into the sunset, with such happiness radiating from her face.
“you’re terrible, muriel…” she is, and you can’t help but love her for it. see this movie!
I loved this movie! 9/10
I rented this movie because I loved Toni Collette in The Sixth Sense and expected it to be a pretty good Australian flick, but it was much, much better than I had ever expected.
One thing I have to complain about, though, has nothing to do with the actual movie: I have to make a complaint about the box. Miramax made this film look like a goofy Aussie romantic comedy. Every critical comment on the box lauded its humor. I even think they made Collette look skinnier on the cover. These people are utter thugs!
This is a drama with some funny moments. I cried more than I laughed. There are so many beautifully drawn characters here. I never wanted this film to end. And it was wonderfully written.
I have only some small complaints about the actual film. This is why I didn’t give it a 10: the annoying friend characters who pretend to like Muriel and Rhonda when it’s convenient are used way too often. They should not have been brought back near the end. The third act is also kind of long. There are three separate conflicts that have to be solved, and it just takes a bit too long.
