My Brilliant Career

synopsis


Sybylla Melvyn (Judy Davis) is the eldest daughter of an impoverished New South Wales farming family. Bold and determined, Sybylla dreams of succeeding as an acclaimed writer. But in a time of sexist ignorance and bigotry, Sybylla has frequent clashes with procrustean conformists. Though it is her love for the dashing Harry Beacham (Sam Neill) that will truly test her desire to succeed as a writer. As events twist and turn, Sybylla is painfully forced to realise the emotional cost of putting her career over love. Critically acclaimed and nominated for an Academy Award, Gillian Armstrong's My Brilliant Career is a delicate parable of one woman's fight for independence, and the sacrifices of her heart that must be made along the way...
