“Good ain't the half of it in this case – it's funny, it's endearing, it's strangely touching.” The Globe and Mail

When drag queen Anthony (Hugo Weaving) agrees to take his act on the road, he invites fellow performers Adam (Guy Pearce) and Bernadette (Terence Stamp) to come along. In their colorful bus, named Priscilla, the three travel across the Australian desert performing for enthusiastic crowds and less-enthusiastic locals. But when the others learn the truth about why Anthony took the job, it threatens their act and their friendship. (Stephan Elliott, 1994, R, 105 min.)
