Entertainment Weekly - 06/03/2005
"Strength. That's what Judy Davis embodies..."
USA Today - 06/10/2005

Product Description:

The oldest child of a poor Australian ranch family (Judy Davis) has aspirations of artistic greatness. However, she finds that she must choose between her dream and her less-than-perfect love affair with Harry (Sam Neill). Based on the autobiographical novel by Miles Franklin, the film was nominated for best costume design.

Plot Synopsis:

Australian actress Judy Davis's auspicious film debut is the biographical story about a turn-of-the-century woman, born to a life of hardship, who dreams of making a career on her own without benefit of marriage, as an independent author.
