MURIEL’S WED­DING

Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - MOVIES -

GO!, Tues­day, 9.30pm, M ( 1994)

Toni Col­lette is Muriel, des­per­ate to be re­spected and mar­ried like her catty girl­friends and maybe one day es­cape Por­poise Spit. On a whim and dad’s blank cheque, she goes in search of her dream, find­ing hap­pi­ness and sur­prise. A study of val­ues and dys­func­tion, the magic in Muriel’s Wed­ding lies with her fam­ily, clev­erly cast by first- time di­rec­tor P. J. Ho­gan who elic­its top per­for­mances from Bill Hunter as the phi­lan­der­ing fa­ther, and Gabby Mill­gate as the couch po­tato sis­ter whose “You’re ter­ri­ble Muriel!” line is price­less. Rachel Grif­fiths ( above left with Col­lette) shines as Muriel’s know­ing best friend.
