This feel-great musical comedy starring UK import Laura Michelle Kelly as Elspeth and Ronan Keating as her husband James is based on a one woman cabaret by South African born performer Joanna Weinberg who found herself isolated and unfulfilled after she and her husband moved to Australia. With James often away tracking whales in the Southern Ocean she’s slowly going mad looking after two loveable but quite difficult children.
When James leaves a webcam with her so they can communicate, he is out of range, so she decides to perform her woes as ‘sink songs’ to the world. When her music goes viral and she becomes a champion for stay-at-home-mums everywhere she is snapped up by an agency to promote a product that appeals to her viewers.
This be careful what you wish for comedy is all about keeping its message entertaining and light which is why it’s perfect for a Friday night in.
