The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert

The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert is one of the greatest films I've ever seen. I watched it with my mum last winter and we really loved it, so we bought the DVD for Christmas and even went to Milan to see the musical. This film is not like the others, it's very original and funny! And, guess what, the main characters are... three drag queens! who wear incredible clothes (in my opinion the best is the one entirely made of pink and orange flip-flops).

I'm not going to write the whole plot in order not to spoil the surprise but at the end of this post you can find some pictures and GIFs.

After one of his usual shows in a gay pub in Sidney, Anthony (aka Mitzi Del Bra) receives a call from his wife Marion whom he didn't see for ages. She asks him to perform at her casino in Alice Springs, a small town in the middle of Australia. So he decides to call his two mates Bernadette and Adam (aka Felicia Jollygoodfellow) to join him and all three of them set out in a bus that Adam calls Priscilla.
During their long journey they meet a group of merry Aborigines and Bob, a mechanic, who joins them and repairs Priscilla's engine as it breaks many times. While Anthony, Adam and Bernadette stay in Bob's town, they perform at the local pub but achieve no success and Bob tries to comfort them.
When the trio arrives in Alice Springs, Adam and Bernadette find out that Marion is Anthony's wife, but the surprises are not finished...

Well, now you have to watch the film! ;) But it's really worth it, trust me!
