Film synopsis

“It’s comedy at it’s best and it’s indigenously Australian. A real cheer-you-up, oh-my-sides-ache-from-laughing experience. Don’t miss the fun!” – CLEO MAGAZINE The small country town of Dimboola is preparing for the nuptials of locals Morrie McAdam (Bruce Spence) and Maureen Delaney (Natalie Bate). The ceremony is just three days away – and there’s not a cloud in the sky……Admittedly Morrie has yet to undergo the rigours of the shearing shed bucks party – an evening that promises plenty of booze, obscenities, fist fights and Angelique – a stripper who’ll do more than just strip – if the price is right!Complications arise when Dangles, the Best Man, delivers incriminating photographs of Morrie and Angelique to Maureen – and the mayhem is worsened when Morrie’s mother reveals that the future bride and groom could actually be first cousins because of a pre-marital fling!Based on the beloved stage play by Jack Hibberd and directed by acclaimed filmmaker John Duigan (The Year My Voice Broke), DIMBOOLA celebrates the unique rituals of marriage – Australian style! No worries!
