25 best Australian movies ever

Thursday is Australia Day, so to pay tribute to our Antipodean chums we've picked out the best films from Down Under

Muriel’s Wedding (1994)

This Australian-French comedy-drama is about a socially awkward “ugly duckling” called Muriel (Toni Collette) – in case you didn’t get that from the title. She’s utterly obsessed with ABBA, is the target of ridicule from her so-called fashion-conscious friends, has a psychologically abusive father, but dreams of one day meeting the ideal man, having a glamorous wedding and drastically improving her mundane social life.

Moving to Sydney with her hedonistic pal, she soon discovers the harsh realities of the real world and the disappointments it can bring.
