About the film:

A surprise smash and a landmark of LGBT cinema, THE ADVENTURES OF PRISCILLA, QUEEN OF THE DESERT follows a joyous group of lip-synching drag divas traveling across the Australian outback in a lavender bus. Guy Pearce was a soap star in OZ when he jumped into the role as the wild and annoying Felicia. Hugo Weaving is moving as the errant dad, Tick. British icon Terence Stamp is a revelation as the bereaved trans woman Bernadette, who may have met the man of her dreams. Fun, fantastic and full of bubbly disco music, the show is stolen by Lizzy Gardiner and Tim Chappel, whose extraordinary costumes take flight, garnering many awards, including Best Costume Design at the 67th Academy Awards.

Running time: 1 hours 43 minutes; Rated R
