A feminist classic

Starring Judy Davis, Sam Neill. Directed by Gillian Armstrong. Australia  1979  100 minutes.

Sybylla Melbyn (Judy Davis) is the eldest daughter of an impoverished New South Wales farming family growing up the late 19th Century.  Bold and determined, Sybylla dreams of success as a writer, and her resolve causes frequent clashes with those close to her who believe that a career is inappropriate for a woman. However, it is her love for the dashing Harry Beacham (Sam Neill) that will truly test Sybylla’s desire to succeed.  Gillian Armstrong’s critically-acclaimed adaptation of Miles Franklin’s classic Australian novel is a delicate parable of one woman’s fight for independence, and the sacrifices that must be made to achieve it.
