Stephan Elliott’s feature about two drag performers and a transgender woman’s odyssey across the Australian outback changed much, including the careers of its stars and the public dialogue about drag and gender. (NFSA)

"The plot of Priscilla isn’t as important as the outlandish, wicked dialogue, the wild costumes and make-up, and the general high spirits of the entire enterprise. Dressed in femme clothes throughout, Stamp gives one of his best perfs as the bereaved woman whose latent masculinity occasionally shows through her graciously elegant exterior and who throws herself into the drag numbers with enthusiasm. Also excellent are Weaving, as the bisexual Tick, and Pearce as the muscular but fey Adam, whose obsession with ABBA manifests itself in a genuinely bizarre fashion." - David Stratton, Variety
