Ladies in Black, the new film from veteran director Bruce Beresford, is one of the most highly anticipated Australian releases of 2018.
Adapted from author Madeleine St John’s best-selling coming-of-age novel, the film – based in Sydney in 1959 – is a feel-good drama draped in high-fashion and glamour.
