The casting for this movie was masterful. Shane Jacobson was fabulous as rhe 1950's Aussie dad and Ryan Corr was perfect in his role as the Hungarian "reffo". He owned that character! Julia Ormond played a Slovenian fashion guru to a tee and the sets were marvellous. From the department store in Sydney centre to the flat by the water in Mosman and the suburban, red texture brick house in Granville... spot on. A feel-good movie that has you laughing and reflecting on it for days afterwards.

Today mum and I saw Ladies in Black.....when asked what she thought mum said &quot;Delightful&quot;, no swearing, no sex, no violence, just a delightful movie........and she was correct.<br/><br/>The movie is set in the late 50s in Sydney and tells the story of Lisa who takes a summer job in Goode&#39;s department store. We meet all the &#39;Ladies in Black&#39; and the story unfolds from here.<br/><br/>I loved seeing how Sydney looked in the late 50s and loved the fashion and style. They certainly knew how to dress back then and looked fabulous even when having dinner in a restaurant or going to visit friends for a lunch.<br/><br/>The young girl played by Angourie Rice was a pleasure to watch on the screen as was Rachael Taylor. I also loved Julia Ormond, Shane Jacobson, Noni Hazlehurst and Susie Porter.<br/><br/>Kudos to my friend Margaret Gill who has her name on the credits and did a lot of the sewing for Julia and Angourie&#39;s outfits. Well done to you I say!<br/><br/>If you are after a nice feel good, easy to watch movie this is the one for you. Mum rated it 8 out of 10, and Im giving it 7

I saw this film at a preview with the director, Bruce Beresford, introducing the film. I didn&#39;t know quite what to expect but I was thoroughly entertained for two hours. It harks back to a time before I was born in which Australia was a very different place. The time is 1959 and refugees have come Downunder to make new lives for themselves. The changing times are reflected by a group of department store workers - the titular Ladies in Black. The script is amusing and I laughed out loud several times. Residents of Sydney and Melbourne will especially find amusement - the rivalry is not new! Special mention must go to Julia Ormond&#39;s Slovenic refugee Magda who works in Model Gowns - she has all the best lines! But everyone is so good I feel bad singling out the lovely Ms Ormond! I must say it&#39;s terrific to see a film with no swearing or violence!
