This wonderfully inventive and incomparably funny Australian film about three drag performers braving the vast, rugged outback won the 1994 Academy Award® for Costume Design. Featuring fabulous and heartfelt performances from Terence Stamp (Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace ), Hugo Weaving (The Matrix ) and Guy Pearce (Memento ), this is “one of the wildest movies ever made” (The New York Observer )!
They came. They conquered. They looked fabulous! With a contract to perform a drag show way out in the Australian desert, Tick (Weaving), Adam (Pearce) and Bernadette (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 heads for the outback…and into crazy adventures in even crazier outfits. You go, girls!
