The Screen Guide

Muriel, a contemporary Cinderella, is a shy young woman living in the seaside resort of Porpoise Spit, a suburban wonderland of shopping malls, marine parks and holiday homes where the excessive expectations of her friends and family cause her to take refuge in a dreamworld of Abba songs and the search for a Prince Charming who will rescue her from anonymity.
