My Brilliant Career (1979)
U 100 minutes in English
Directed by Gillian Armstrong
Starring Judy Davis, Sam Neill, Wendy Hughes
As the 20th century beckons, Sybylla Melvyn is stuck on her family farm amid Victorian-era attitudes. She rebels against social convention, resists the pressure of proposals from suitors, and refuses to conform. Instead, she aspires for independence and holds firm to her free spirit, while cherishing literary ambitions.
Based on the novel by Miles Franklin, this sensitive portrait draws on its characters’ charms and the wild beauty of its rural bush setting, to fashion a feminist coming-of-age tale, while upending the traditions of period romance. A landmark in the Australian New Wave, the film was a surprise hit worldwide, providing breakthrough success for its lead actors and director.
Winner of 6 awards from the Australian Film Institute, for best film, director, screenplay, achievement in production design, costume design and cinematography. BAFTA named Judy Davis best actress and most outstanding newcomer. Special Achievement Award as a directing debut from London critics.
