One of my favorite books. The movie is just as wonderful. It inspired a young woman to always seek just a little more than others thought she could achieve.

A true Australian classic. My Brilliant Career was Gillian Armstrong's feature film directing debut, becoming the first Australian feature length drama directed by a woman in 46 years. Fun to see both Judy Davis and Sam Neill (looking very dashing) launch their careers with this film.
