Love Serenade is a quirky, offbeat Australian romantic comedy movie released in 1996 that tells the story of two sisters who both fall in love with the same man. The protagonist of the movie is Dimity Hurley, a quirky and eccentric woman who is a bit of a misfit in her small Australian town. She lives with her older sister, Vicki-Ann, who is more conventionally attractive and outgoing than Dimity. The sisters cook and clean for a living and spend most of their time fantasizing about finding true love.

Enter Ken Sherry, a new radio announcer in town who moves into the apartment next door to the Hurleys. Both sisters become enamored with Ken and begin competing for his attention. As Ken gets to know the sisters, he becomes increasingly drawn to Dimity, despite her odd behavior.

Dimity and Ken's courtship is interspersed with scenes of Vicki-Ann's attempts to win Ken's heart for herself. The sisters' relationship is fraught with tension, as they both struggle to reconcile their love for each other with their desire for the same man.

The characters are all endearing in their own right, with Miranda Otto delivering a standout performance as the eccentric and lovable Dimity.
