The ninety minute film documents the recording of Aretha Franklin’s 1972 gospel album of the same name.
This is a story of redemption, and the value one attributes to family. The reality is that Rose-Lynn is largely unlikable during the piece. Perhaps the mark of a talented actress in Buckley, we get frustrated by her behaviours, and ultimately don’t necessarily want her to succeed in her quest for country music stardom.

Kathy Lette’s Big Night Out is polished to perfection, which at times, takes away from the rawness of stories that she tells. That being said, there is no doubt, that Lette is an iconic Aussie with a powerful message of female empowerment in a Trumpified, #MeToo world.

Confetti (Pretty but a bit of a mess) delivered a message of self-love, showered in all things that sparkle!
