IndieWire critic David Ehrlich equally gushed over the movie in his evaluation. “Rian Johnson’s “Knives Out” – a crackling, devious, and massively satisfying old-school whodunnit with a contemporary twist – needs you to know that it takes place on the planet of right this moment. Actually, it needs you to know that it needs you to know. Hardly a minute goes by with out some reference to the right here and now of all of it. When legendary crime novelist Harlan Thrombey is discovered useless the morning after his 85th birthday, it’s as if the previous dies with him and the current comes speeding in to interchange it, keen to assert the inheritance to which it all the time felt entitled.”

A cult favorite of 1990s independent cinema, this film helped launch Toni Collette’s international career. Alongside Rachel Griffiths, she expertly fronts this revisionist Cinderella story in which two women find each other despite their struggles with gender, class and disability. Ultimately, Muriel’s Wedding is an emphatic celebration of pop music and female friendship, telling a widely accessible story about learning to love yourself in a world that assigns value based on how well you fit into a mold.

PJ Hogan’s “Muriel’s Wedding” is perhaps one of most impactful Australian films released in the past 40 years. Not only did the film introduce us to the talents of Toni Collete and Rachel Griffiths, the comedy, set in the fictitious beach community of ‘Porpoise Spit’, also coined numerous phrases such as ‘Deirdre Chambers. What a concidence!’ or ‘You’re terrible Muriel’, which are now part of international folklore. The 2019 Australian International Screen Forum celebrated this landmark film’s 25th anniversary with a special screening, yesterday, and appearance by Muriel herself, Toni Collette, in conversation, alongside her Heslop brother Dan Wyllie.
