It’s been 30 years since Toni Collette’s motion picture debut in “Spotswood”, which has been released on Blu-Ray for the first time by Umbrella Entertainment earlier this month. Filmed in 1990, Toni was just starting out at the The Sydney Theatre Company and delivering pizzas on the side, when she was cast by Mark Joffe to play factory worker Wendy opposite Ben Mendelsohn and Anthony Hopkins, coming fresh of filming his masterful performance in “Silence of the Lambs”. You can also watch out for Russell Crowe in a supporting role. From here, it was only two years until Toni’s breakthrough performance in “Muriel’s Wedding”. She reunited with Joffe and Mendelsohn for 1996’s equally charming “Cosi” and co-starred a second time with Hopkins in 2012’s “Hitchcock”. In case you’re looking for the film for an anniversary rewatch, “Spotswood” was also released under the very odd title “The Efficiency Expert”.
