Ladies In Black (2018)

dir. Bruce Beresford. Completely charming, romantic story about the lives of a group of women in 1959 Sydney, Australia – all working in a posh department store. There’s some really wonderful production design, showing 1950s fashions, interior design, as well as architecture, thanks to some very elegant shot blocking, and some special effects. The heart of the movie is high schooler Lisa, played by Angourie Rice (Betty in the new Spiderman movies), and she’s delightful. I really loved it, it’s a comfortable easy to watch film, with more than one tear jerking moment.
