MY BRILLIANT CAREER

(Australia, 1979; Dir: Gillian Armstrong)

Featuring the acting debut of Judy Davis and the directing debut of Gillian Armstrong, My Brilliant Career is based on a 1901 autobiographical novel by 16-year-old Miles Franklin which chronicles the efforts of an independent-minded farm girl to fulfill her dream of becoming a writer. In this process, she must fend off a priggish suitor and deal with her attraction to a wealthy landowner (Sam Neill) who slowly but surely expresses his love for her.
