Undercover is a slick film about women's underwear, as developed by an Australian designing firm run by Fred Burley in the 1920s. The story which is true in its basic outlines, begins with Libby McKenzie who leaves her small town for Sydney and hopefully, a better life. Libby ends up working for Burley's clothing design company where she meets all sorts of independent-minded characters, including her supervisor, the head designer Nina.

Synopsis

Fred Burley was an Australian pioneer. An unsung hero who wanted all Australians to buy Australian made. So in Sydney in the Roaring 1920s he put his money and expertise into lifting Australia's women out of their whalebone corsets and into the new flattering figure form lingerie. And the Berlei empire was born.From David Elfick, the producer of NEWSFRONT and STARSTRUCK, and photographed by Academy Award winning Cinematographer Dean Semler, UNDERCOVER is the story of that momentous event as told through the eyes of young and naive Libby (Genevieve Picot), who leaves a job in a small town corsetry salon to travel to the Big Smoke and find work as a trainee lingerie designer at Unique Corsets.Owned by Fred Burley (John Walton), dominated by the extravagant head designer Nina (Sandy Gore) and sold to the public by Yankee marketing expert Max (Michael Para), Libby soon finds herself in the middle of a Unique revolution as Berlei is born and the women of Australia race to suspender their disbelief and become uplifted (and separated) in their all new Berlei bras.

undercover was in my opinion a good movie that I thought was well written with a well thought out story line and a believable plot.The level of acting in this movie was of a good standard with all lines delivered in a well timed manner and it was this and the story lines as well as the interesting characters which made this movie enjoyable to watch.
If you enjoy a well made movie I think you will enjoy this movie and as such is recommended by me.
