R | | Comedy, Drama
A glamorous woman returns to her small town in rural Australia. With her sewing machine and haute couture style, she transforms the women and exacts sweet revenge on those who did her wrong.
Kate Winslet learned to sew for her part. Following this, she assisted Margot Wilson in creating the costumes for her character. Wilson was exclusively hired to create the outfits for Winslet's character.
Myrtle 'Tilly' Dunnage:
I'm back, you bastards.
When Gertrude passes the book of stage costumes to Tilly ( at about minute 93), you can see that the cover reads "Soldiering On", which was a dark red book issued to members of the Australian Army after WWII. In the next shot the fake cover is on the book.
Windmill squeak is heard at then end of the credits.
