They came. They conquered. They looked fabulous.

This wonderfully inventive, visually stunning and incomparably funny Australian import about three drag performers braving the vast, rugged outback won the 1994 Academy Award for Costume Design. Veteran actor Terence Stamp (Star Wars: The Phantom Menace), Hugo Weaving (The Matrix) and Guy Pearce (L.A. Confidential) all give hilarious, and heartfelt, performances in a three-fishes-outta-water story that`s "one of the wildest movies ever made" (Rex Reed, New York Observer)!

With a contract to perform a drag show way out in the Australian desert, Tick (Weaving), Adam (Pearce) and Ralph (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 head for the outback... and into crazy adventures in even crazier outfits. You Go Girls!

7Bought the film on a whim as I heard it was good. I couldn't believe how really great this film was! Funny and one hell of a spectacle - Terrance Stamp is amazing. Don't let the subject matter put you off this truly is a great movie - it will want you to take up Ping Pong again too. One of the most surprisingly good films I have seen. Buy it!
