* AdaptationalHeroism: A general example. The Sirens in Greek mythology were evil creatures whose songs lured sailors to their deaths on the rocks. Siren song is also used as an expression for dangerous temptation. Here the Siren analogues are instead tempting their victims to discover something wonderful and passionate about themselves.



* AlphaBitch: Sheela seems to show traits of this.

to:

* AlphaBitch: Sheela seems to show traits of this.this as the ring leader of the models - but Pru is the bitchiest one, making her something of a BetaBitch. Sheila appears to be a LovableAlphaBitch by the end.



* ComingOfAgeStory: A late bloomer variation. Estella is a repressed housewife who discovers her sexuality.



* ADateWithRosiePalms: Estella sees Devlin masturbating. Uniquely for this trope (with regards to male sexuality), it's not portrayed as gross.



* ItsNotPornItsArt

to:

* ItsNotPornItsArtItsNotPornItsArt: Norman Lindsay argues that the nudity and explicit content in his paintings comes from how he feels about love.
--> "There's a fierceness to it."



* LatinLover: Devlin.

to:

* LatinLover: Devlin.Devlin, although Australian and not Latino, fits the appearance and the sensuality.


Added DiffLines:

* QuestionableConsent: [[spoiler: Estella gives Giddy some of her own perfume, her wedding ring and ties her hair up to make Devlin think it's her he's sleeping with]].


Added DiffLines:

* TheThreeFacesOfEve: The three models. Giddy - the young and naive one - is the Child. Pru - the socialism fan and best spoken of the girls - is the Wife. Sheila - sexual and free-spirited - is the Seductress.

Set in Australia between the two World Wars, the film follows Anthony Campion (Grant), a British Anglican priest, and his wife Estella (Fitzgerald) on holiday in Australia. Anthony has been asked by a bishop to visit the artist Norman Lindsey (Neill) when his paintings have been declared too vulgar and offensive to be used in an exhibition. When visiting the artist's home, the couple are baffled and almost attracted by the free and loose ways that Lindsey's models (the "sirens" of the title) flaunt their sexuality. The film acts as a study into the psyche of Estella's mind as she fantasizes and begins to act on her impulses.
