Gillian Armstrong's MY BRILLIANT CAREER
Featuring the acclaimed debut of Judy Davis, Career is the award-winning feature debut of director Gillian Armstrong, who brings just the right feminist touch to this stately adaptation of the 1901 semi-autobiographical novel by Miles Franklin. Davis plays 16-year-old Sybylla Melvyn, on the verge of womanhood in turn-of-the-century Australia and determined to have "a brilliant career" as an independent writer and lover of life, but her attraction to a wealthy bachelor (Sam Neill), and the pressures of her family to lead a conventional life of devoted domesticity, turn this into a romantic and highly observant drama of personal dilemma and free-spirited conviction.
