One of the traditions in our house is Movie Night, a Saturday night splurge on a pad in the living room with a big…huge bowl of freshly popped corn and a movie. We watch all kinds of films and the choice is taken in all kinds of ways – voting, group decision, luck of the draw, bribing, whining, manipulation, parent authority..all is fair.
This is what we watched tonight:
The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert
I am sure most of you will cringe at the idea of showing your kids a movie about drag queens, but we are not one of these people. We had been listening and dancing to the music of the movie for awhile and Mr.Blab found the DVD this week, so we were waiting with excitement to watch it.
Here is some information on the movie – Widipedia
And did you know they have a musical now as well – Priscilla Musica
Here is how it scored in our house:
Ms. Fab: (took one point off for swearing)
Little B : fell asleep
We had a great time. Ms.Fab was quite disappointed when it ended and asked for a costume like one of those in the movie. When Priscilla (the bus) got painted with gay slur, I asked her why she thought the people did that to the main characters and she said:
– Cause they are different.
And arent they fabulous!
