In the 1930s, an artist and his models scandalized a nation with their controversial paintings. For a young couple, meeting them was the experience of a lifetime.
In 1930s Australia, Anglican clergyman Anthony Campion and his prim wife, Estella, are asked to visit noted painter Norman Lindsay, whose planned contribution to an international art exhibit is considered blasphemous. While Campion and Lindsay debate, Estella finds herself drawn to the three beautiful models sitting for the painter's current work, freethinking Sheela, sensual Pru and virginal Giddy.


Last night I watched the Movie “Sirens” on the TATaTU movie channel and what a treat. Directed by John Duigan, staring Hugh Grant, Ella Macpherson, Portia de Rossi, Sam Neil... When the Church decides that one of the paintings for an upcoming Art Exhibit is “Blasphemous” they ask a young Minister, played by Hugh Grant, to travel to the Artist’s Studio in Australia to convince him to remove the painting from the show. When the Minister and his young wife arrive at the Studio they are greeted by the Artist played by Sam Neil, his wife and the 3 very beautiful models that are the subjects of his paintings. The Minister and the Artist, along with the models and wives discuss the seemingly overt sexual content and blasphemous nature of the painting in question and many philosophical and often comical debates ensue. As the Title would suggest the 3 models are magically enchanting in all they do and eventually tempt the Minister’s wife to join them in their ways. I don’t want to say much more without giving it all away..... The Cinematography and Acting are wonderful. In Greek mythology, the Sirens lured nearby sailors with their enchanting music and singing voices to shipwreck on the rocky coast of their island. I remember hearing about this movie back in the late 90’s, always wanted to see it and thanks to Johnny Depp’s new Free Movie Network I was able to watch it for Free. Rating: 4.5/5 Stars
