Not only does she reconcile with her ailing, eccentric mother Molly (Judy Davis) and unexpectedly fall for the pure-hearted Teddy (Liam Hemsworth), but armed with her sewing machine and an incredible sense of style, she transforms the women of the town and sets about righting the wrongs of the past. Co-starring Hugo Weaving, Barry Otto, Sarah Snook and Rebecca Gibney.
