Ladies in Black

PG - Coarse language.

The classic Australian story about love, hope and the perfect dress, now adapted for the big screen. From Academy Award® nominated director Bruce Beresford comes the comedy drama Ladies in Black, based on Madeleine St John’s best-selling novel, The Women in Black. Set in the summer of 1959, when the impact of European migration and the rise of women’s liberation is about to change Australia forever, a shy schoolgirl (Lisa) takes a summer job at the prestigious Sydney department store, Goode’s. There she meets the “ladies in black”, who will change her life forever. Beguiled and influenced by Magda, the vivacious manager of the high-fashion floor, and befriended by fellow sales ladies Patty and Fay, Lisa is awakened to a world of possibilities. As Lisa grows from a bookish schoolgirl to a glamorous and positive young woman, she herself becomes a catalyst for a cultural change in everyone’s lives.
