Editorial Reviews

Geoffrey Rush is a hilariously devout minister chasing a runaway seminary student named Willie across the land down under. As Willie tries to make it back to the girl of his dreams, he embarks on a glorious, uproarious road trip filled with music, magic, and foot-stomping fun.

I'm not a great fan of musicals but this one won me over a few songs in, when it became clear this was not some schmaltzy precious view of Australian culture. Warm-hearted and post-modern, fun with an historical edge... it reeks of a new Australian Aboriginal confidence. It looks great too! Watch this instead of "Australia"!

This heartfelt musical comes with the aid of Screen Australia. It is set in 1968 where we meet a young Aboriginal boy named Willy, whose burgeoning hormones are pulling him towards his sweetheart Rosie, but his born again Christian mum is pushing him towards Priesthood and the avoidance of all sinful thoughts, let alone sinful deeds. So instead of being able to enjoy the laid back and mellow pearl fishing coastal town of Broome, he is packed off to Missionary school for some not so `happy clappy' ecumenical teachings.

Once back in the clutches of Father Benedictus (played brilliantly in a pantomime stylie by Geoffrey Rush), his life takes a turn for the miserable almost straight away. Then he makes the decision to stand up for his rights. This means that, despite performing a cracking tune with the refrain `There's nothing I would rather be, than to be an aborigine', he has to do a runner. This is the start of a road trip which will involves tramps, hippies and more adventures than you can shake a stick at.

I am not big on musicals, but this one is really funny, has real charm and some brilliantly over the top performances. The fab named Ernie Dingo (`Crocodile Dundee II') playing Uncle Tadpole is a case in point. Some of the acting is a bit third rate rep but because of the passion that jumps off the screen you really won't be too bothered.

This is just a load of fun, check out the treatment given to Tammy Wynette's `Stand by Your Man', just magical. So with a mix of original tunes and some well known numbers, the obligatory dance routines and black and white good and bad with some extra marital sex and a huge dose of fun thrown in - this all adds up to a really cracking little film. It put a smile on my face so I can only recommend.

I caught the show early one morning and fell in love with the characters, the storyline, and the amazing music. Lots of predictible plot twists, but a great show with a lot of very sly humor throughout. The music is hard to forget ... you will remember it and keep humming it for days to come!

I watched this when I was living in Australia and fell in love with it. I am so happy it has finally come out in the US!
Be prepared to have these songs stuck in your head for days!

Adventures of Priscilla Queen of the Desert meets Bollywood is the best way to describe this wonderful film. Clever songs, fun dancing, and the perfect cast makes this film a must see. I can't wait for the DVD to finally come out in the States. This is what Hollywood should be putting out, instead of so many bad movies. Original and uplifting, funny and unexpected, buckle your seat belts and hang on for the ride of your life...

This DVD is not compatible for US VCR technology, so it was a waste. Tried seeing it on YouTube, but all the music was deleted. Very disappointing because this musical looks like it's one of the most important ever produced. I'd been looking forward to seeing it for years.

Saw this film in the theater with its Australian title Bran Nue Dae. I don't know why they changed the title, but I absolutely love this film. Great music and lots of fun.
