Muriel's Wedding

Muriel's Wedding ★★★★

I may have relapsed a bit, but I'm back on the #bangertrain.

First watch! Charming! Rom-coms about friends being supportive of each other is probably my second favourite genre (after Scandinavian revenge thrillers of course). Tows the line between sad and funny in a way that lets one propel the other instead of stomping all over it. Very impressive balancing act that had my tearing up one moment and laughing out loud the next. Kind of wish it lingered a bit more on Muriel finding herself in the big city, but that just reminded me that I need to watch Girlfriends (1978) again so no complaints.
