Today's the day.
Topp Twins: Untouchable Girls is opening in Wellywood. I can't wait to see it. Even the trailer brought tears to my eyes AND made me laugh. And remember the past.
It reminded me a little of Margot Francis' classic Two Gals from Tuatapere and another 1987 film, Mangawhai Film Festival. It gave me the same wonderful feelings as "Young@heart".
And I predict it'll be New Zealand's Mamma Mia here and in Australia and maybe in a whole lot of other places.
So why is it not opening in central Wellington? Just in little neighbourhood cinemas far away from me, at Petone and Pauatahanui, those lucky people there. Can I get there, on this wintry pre-Easter break day?
Here's the trailer.
