Muriel's Wedding is a cult comedy-drama written and directed by the inimitable PJ Hogan.

The film centres around the socially awkward Muriel (Toni Collette), whose dream is to have a dazzling wedding and leave her dead-end town.

Featuring a stellar supporting cast – including Rachel Griffiths, Bill Hunter, Jeanie Drynan and Sophie Lee – the film is a wonderful celebration of difference, acceptance, and all things ABBA.

‘An engaging, funny and sometimes surprisingly tough romantic comedy’ – Geoff Andrew, Time Out

‘Writer-director PJ Hogan has some unexpected twists in store before his quirky farce reaches its uplifting conclusion’ – Neil Smith,

NFSA curator Jenny Gall will present iconic costumes from the film held in our collection, including the pink and peach bridesmaid's dresses and the accessories to Muriel's dress.
