Synopsis: Adapted from the bestselling novel by Madeleine St John, Ladies in Black is an alluring and tender-hearted comedy drama about the lives of a group of department store employees in 1959 Sydney.

As momentum builds for the September 20 launch of Bruce Beresford’s Ladies in Black, the distributor and exhibitors are increasingly confident of a sizable opening weekend and a long run sustained by word-of-mouth and repeat business. Don Groves, 'Bruce Beresford's Ladies in Black is dressed for success', IF, 11 September 2018.

This is a lightly romantic, gently uplifting, mostly amusing story for audiences who appreciate films where there are no profanities in the dialogue, no gore splattering on the floor and no orange fireball explosions.  Watch Ladies in Black and be transported back to a rosier era ... Phil Jeng Kane, accessreel.
