While I can brag about having covered all of Toni Collette’s feature and television films on this site, there has been one project I haven’t been able to find – and which seemed impossible to find. In 1994, right before shooting “Muriel’s Wedding”, Toni Collette played the lead part of Cindy in a short subject called “This Marching Girl Thing”, directed by Kelli Simpson, about a young baton twirler with the Southern Twirlettes. Cindy looks like she fits in, but she’s just beginning to feel like she doesn’t. The film, with a running time of 20 minutes, was shown at film festivals around the world, including the Chicago International Film Festival and the Los Angeles Gay & Lesbian Film Fest, but it was never widely released or shown on television. Now, with many many thanks to the wonderful Adrienne, we have found a copy and I’m pleased to present you screencaptures from this gem. An honorable mention goes to Matt Day, who plays Toni’s boyfriend in the film – you surely remember him better as Brice Nobes, the cringe-worthy one-night-stand in “Muriel’s Wedding”. Click below to watch all screencaptures in the photo gallery. Once again, many thanks to Adrienne!
