Lizzy Gardiner and Tim Chappel’s costume designs are the real stars of this hilarious Australian comedy that dares you to change the way you live, love and dress. Terence Stamp, Hugo Weaving and Guy Pearce all give terrific performance as three drag queens travelling across the Australian continental desert in a faulty bus to play a gig in Alice Springs. Along the way they learn loads about each other and themselves, and wear the most fabulous ensembles to complement their journey at every step. Comedy couldn’t be more enjoyable, and unlike its American counterpart To Wong Foo, Thanks For Everything, Julie Newmar, this one also has a big heart at its flashy centre.
