Muriel's wedding & Looking for Alibrandi.

I'll admit I haven't watched a massive amount of Aussie movies.

I really love The Year My Voice Broke. Great performances and haunting score.

Also a movie from the 90s called Me, Myself, I with Rachel Griffiths. It's wasn't a great movie but I loved it. I used to have it on video.

I really like Lantana too.
