Synopsis: When young mum Elspeth Dickens (Laura Michelle Kelly), mother of naughty twin boys, installs a webcam in her kitchen, her funny sink-songs make her a cyber-sensation. While her husband James (Ronan Keating) is off saving the world's whales, Elspeth is offered the chance of a lifetime. But when forced to choose between fame and family, the newly anointed internet goddess almost loses it all.

Verdict: Goddess is one of those films that gives you the urge to jump out of your seat and dance (and sing) along with the cast to the original songs featured.

Audiences will easily relate to Elspeth Dickens (Laura Michelle Kelly) who has a dream of being recognised however in reality she lives in a small country town with her twin boy toddlers whilst her husband travels for work. But when he husband gives her a webcam to communicate with him she turns into an overnight sink-singing sensation and is transported to Sydney and given the opportunity to live the high life of a Goddess. Of course her new found fame still leaves her thinking (and watching) her family, at home.

Goddess has a fantastic collective of Australian stars which brightens up the screen and allows you to feel at home. If you love musicals, Goddess is for you.
