Ladies in Black, the latest flick from Bruce Beresford, spirits us away to the then glamorous world of the department store in late-1950s Sydney.

Beresford takes us behind the scenes of the production in this featurette, with many an interesting tale to tell.

Ladies in Black has been adapted from the bestselling novel by Madeleine St John, and stars Rachael Taylor, Julia Ormond, Angourie Rice, Susie Porter, Noni Hazelhurst and Shane Jacobson. It’s now showing in Aussie cinemas.
