Another light hearted Australian comedy lands on DVD and Blu-ray which
ironically is a musical and stars a bevy of talented actors that include
Laura Michelle Kelly, Ronan Keating, Magda Szubanski, Pia Miranda and
Dustin Clare. Given that, the film links to a certain Hollywood classic
with rolling green hills.
story of Goddess revolves around Elspeth (Laura Michelle Kelly), a
housewife in rural Tasmania who becomes an internet sensation thanks to
her video blog. As a result, Elspeth became a viral hit by performing a
plethora of songs in front of her webcam and then publishing them to the
world as her life is rather ho-hum as a house wife.
Unfortunately as a housewife, she finds herself in a rut and to compound
the situation, her husband James (Ronan Keating) is off gallivanting
around the world but fate is about to deal another deck of cards to
the popularity of Elspeth on the internet, she is hired by a Sydney
advertising company to become the next "IT" girl and thanks to Cassandra
Wolfe (Magda Szubanski), she takes her on a rollercoaster journey that
will make you laugh, cry and have a wonderful musical time from start to
Another highlight is the choreography of Goddess, thanks to Kelly Abbey that really transforms
this film into a classic musical that is more akin to Mary Poppins
opposed to something like Priscilla or Mama Mia. Laura Michelle Kelly is
the star of the show but even so, her supporting cast are also a treat
to watch. What a ride!
