Ladies in Black is set in Sydney in the summer of 1959, against the backdrop of Australia's cultural awakening, breakdown of class structures, and liberation of women. It tells the coming-of-age story of suburban schoolgirl Lisa, who while waiting for her final high school exam results with dreams of going to the University of Sydney, takes a summer job at a large department store.

There's a scene at Istvan's house where goulash is served. Depending on geography Goulash can be a stew or a soup. It is definitely a soup in Hungary so people use spoons to eat it and not forks as it was described in the movie. See more »

It is great to return to times when women were treated with respect, when even maritial sex was shocking to a husband (sic), when women always had gloves.

It is not a perfect movie. It is simply a very nice one to watch.
