The 1994 Australian Comedy-drama film written and directed by P J Hogan and which received multiple nominations, Stars Toni Collette as the socially awkward Muriel obsessed with Abba songs and whose ambition is to have a glamourous wedding and improve her personal life.
The film see’s Muriel moving from Porpoise Spit to Melbourne changing her name (it’s Mariel Dad!) and marrying an Olympic swimmer in order to achieve her ambition of her dream wedding. The film is worth it if only to see Muriel (sorry, Mariel) quick stepping down the aisle to Abba as the bemused and disapproving congregation look on.
