LADIES IN BLACK (PG)
A BEAUTIFUL OUTFIT CUT FROM THE RIGHT MATERIAL, AUSTRALIA, 109 MIN
A sincerely sweet bundle of nostalgic joy, unwrapped amid a lovely Sydney of yesteryear. It is 1959 and a teen lands a position at the city’s finest department store. Lisa (a luminous Angourie Rice) learns a lot about life from Magda (Julia Ormond), the head of the glamour outfits section. The acting ensemble is flawless. Directed by Bruce Beresford from the novel by Madeleine St John.
