Ladies in BlackBruce Beresford Directs
Ladies in Black is an adaptation of the beloved novel The Women in Black by Madeleine St John, which follows a group of vibrant women working in a Sydney department store in 1959.
Warm-hearted, funny and overflowing with verve, the film follows Lisa (Angourie Rice) — a shy school student whose vivacious colleagues at her new job open up her hitherto sheltered life to an exciting new range of experiences. Director Bruce Beresford has pulled together a cast stacked with talent — with appearances from Rachael Taylor, Julia Ormond, Noni Hazlehurst and Shane Jacobson — to tell this wickedly entertaining story set during a moment of major cultural change in Australia.
