    Synopsis


    The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert
    The usually menacing British actor Terence Stamp does a complete turnaround as Bernadette, an aging transsexual who tours the backwaters of Australia with her stage partners, Mitzi (Hugo Weaving) and Adam/Felicia (Guy Pearce). Their act, well-known in Sydney, involves wearing lots of makeup and gowns and lip-synching to records, but Bernadette is getting a bit tired of it all and is also haunted by the bizarre death of an old loved one. Nevertheless, when Mitzi and Felicia get an offer to perform in the remote town of Alice Springs at a casino, Bernadette decides to tag along. The threesome ventures into the outback with Priscilla, a lavender-colored school bus that doubles as dressing room and home on the road. Along the way, the act encounters any number of strange characters, as well as incidents of homophobia, while Bernadette becomes increasingly concerned about the path her life has taken. ~ Don Kaye, Rovi

      The title of this movie says it all in ... "Adventure"! Just imagine this as an old fashion "Hollywood Western" but set in Australia ... and with high-heels & sequins! It has it all ... travel, comedy, tragedy, drama, adventure ... and all that with Academy Award winning costumes! And for the record, no three "straight" actors have ever done a better job playing gay characters. The extras on the disc are almost as interesting as the main feature. Definitely ... people with left feet made this movie!

      ...with an awesome soundtrack. An interesting film about Australian drag queens on a road trip, the comedy is a gem that is often overlooked. The image and sound quality are decent, but also a product of their time, not flawless. There's a decent selection of special features, of note being a lengthy blooper reel that is worth a watch.

      I buy a lot of movies and I only buy blu-ray. Most modern movies the transfer to blu-ray is decent. For $7 this movies is a must have. This is a comedy/drama of the adventures of 2 drag queens and a woman going across the Australian outback in a bus called Priscilla. This movie actually put Australian cinema on the map.

      This has to be one of the best movies out there ... I have owned it for over 10 years and watch it over and over. This movie won awards for costume design and the cinematography at times is amazing. AND if you like ABBA music, even better! Great all around campy movie, definitely get this one.

      Classic comedy entertainment. Plus on BluRay I notice some things I never saw before in the backgrounds. Great movie, probably not a family film but good for a laugh. Especially when you realize all these guys went on to do Action Thrillers!

      Cross-Dressing Road Trip

      If you're looking for a movie with a lot of singing, over-the-top characters, and bright colors...then this is your movie. The DVD has some interesting special features on it, but that doesn't help it from catering to a very niche audience.

      No, I would not recommend this to a friend

      One of my all-time favorite movies, and it is FINALLY on BluRay. This is a great comedy, but has a powerful message of equality and acceptance. We need more movies like this around.

      This movie put Guy Pierce and Hugo Weaving on the map and onto bigger and better things. This film is a wonderful comedy with sharp witty humor and strong emotional connections.
