|Sybylla Melbyn (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, winning six AFI Awards, as well as being nominated for an Academy Award, Golden Palm award at the Cannes Film Festival, and Golden Globe Award, My Brilliant Career is a delicate parable of one woman's fight for independence, and the sacrifices of the heart that must be made along the way.|

Miles Franklins very entertaining novel and film
Having seen the film many years ago I was eager to read the book and found it just as good as Gillian Armstrong’s film. It depicted very well how hard life was for the people struggling to make a living off the land at that time and except for the landed gentry not to many seemed to succeed. Her description of the Australian landscape brought a tear to my eye and I shall be looking for her books of poetry to continue my rediscovery of Miles Franklins work. I purchased the DVD after reading the book and found it just as good as I had remembered the first time I saw it. Highly recommended.
