The hippie heroine of this wacky Aussie comedy cheerfully theorizes that Australia was actually originally settled not by convicts but by mental patients — which may possibly explain the antics of Russell Crowe and Nicole Kidman, among others.

Confession: I had a poster on my bedroom wall of that deliciously tight-bunned Paul Mercurio when Strictly Ballroom came out so I clearly have a soft spot for big, brash Aussie cinema. Mental falls into that category. It’s so gaudy that if you go...

SO promising on paper Mental is a weird disappointment from Australian director P. J. Hogan who teams up with Toni Collette for the first time since their endearing hit Muriel’s Wedding in 1994.

Shadows on the Wall
Nearly 20 years after Muriel's Wedding, Hogan reunites with Collette for another Aussie black comedy. They pack far too much into the story for everything to work, but the film is consistently smart, funny and endearing as it builds to a series of...
