23 March 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I have read about this film and have wanted to see it for awhile, so I was pleased to see it finally come out on DVD. The story is set in the mid 1990's, about a vivacious out spoken actress who is diagnosed with cancer and her son who works as a waiter. What starts off as a simple story, Prisoner Queen, draws you into a strange warped fantasy world and somehow makes you feel as though you've actually entered into late night TV yourself. Praise must go to the lead actors, Jude Kuring and Tim Burns. Are they actually mother and son in real life? It feels like they are? Kuring looks like she is actually undergoing chemotherapy and the scenes in the hospital almost feels like you are watching a documentary. The whole cast are quite commendable and a complete freakshow. It's a very funny movie, filled with a lot of heart breaking moments and both Kuring and Burns are hilarious. If you remember the 90's, and forgotten a lot of it, Prisoner Queen will remind you quite accurately. It really is quite a snapshot of that era, especially if you are from Melbourne. I ha to laugh at a scene where an old lady is car jacked by a drug crazed 90's club chick, the old lady reaches for her mobile, which is three times the size of today's smart phones. Prisoner Queen is an impressive piece of film-making and is brilliant due to it's unique aspects and the fact that for 90 minutes you have gone back to another time that doesn't seem that long ago but indeed so far removed from our lives now.
