Priscilla Queen of the Desert Blu-Ray Review

Synopsis: This wonderfully inventive and incomparably funny Australian film about three drag performers braving the vast, rugged outback won the 1994 Academy Award® for Costume Design. Featuring fabulous and heartfelt performances from Terence Stamp (Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace), Hugo Weaving (The Matrix) and Guy Pearce (Memento), this is “one of the wildest movies ever made” (The New York Observer ) and has since become the latest Broadway sensation!

They came. They conquered. They looked fabulous! With a contract to perform a drag show way out in the Australian desert, Tick (Weaving), Adam (Pearce) and Bernadette (Stamp) each has his own reason for wanting to leave the safety of Sydney. Christening their battered, pink tour bus “Priscilla,” this wickedly funny and high-drama trio heads for the outback…and into crazy adventures in even crazier outfits. You go, girls!

Review: This Australian film from1994 made a huge splash.  It features 3 drag queens sent off to perform a lip-sync show in the desert, and of course hilarity ensues.  The film cast is fantastic and the actors do a great job of really delivering on the roles.  This one is very similar to the 1995 "Thanks for Everything Julie Newmar" that was released here in the States.  This marks the blu-ray release of the film and its long overdue!  The transfer is really nice.  Most of the scenes are daylight outdoor shots and there is no evident grain.  Definately a must-have.

Interest Range: Comedy, Cult Classic
