Given the huge wealth of movie musicals hitting the globe nowadays, it makes sense that the genre would be reborn in the Southern Hemisphere. With films like The Greatest Showman, La La Land, Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again and dramas-that-are-really-musicals like Bohemian Rhapsody and A Star is Born, well, it just makes plain sense to have a musical that features notable Kiwi tunes as the soundtrack.

Daffodils is based on the stage play about the true story of how two people fell in love, and in turn, how that love fell apart. Featuring NZ singer Kimbra, Daffodils also has Rose McIver and George Mason as the two leads who fall in love. Featuring renditions of Crowded House, Bic Runga, and Dave Dobbyn songs, this looks like one very beautiful musical to lose yourself in.

Check out the trailer below, all the while wondering when Australia will get a Go-Betweens/The Church/You Am I-esque musical.
