The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert
In Association with Limerick Pride 2017
It’s the Australian film that blitzed overseas box offices! It caused a near riot at the Cannes Film Festival. It won an Academy Award. It’s fun, daring, over-the-top and unforgettable. It’s a road movie with attitude and the occasional frock….what more could you want?
Three friends, three lives, one persuasion and a pink bus named Priscilla head into the Australian desert with their colourful, extravagant show in a road movie that brings culture clash to the forefront of a comedy of errors. A mixture of vast landscapes, narrow minds and a melancholy, reflective mood that with the help of a larger than life gal that is Priscilla she more than widens the comfort zones and finds not just new horizons but also finds that is lost.
Director: Stephan Elliott
