Director Gillian Armstrong drew on author Miles Franklin's novel, a turn-of-the-twentieth-century Australian coming-of-age story, to upend the conventions of period romance. Headstrong young Sybylla bemoans her stifling life in the country, where her literary ambitions receive little encouragement, and craves independence. When a handsome landowner begins to court her, Sybylla must decide whether she can reconcile the prospect of marriage with the life's work she has imagined for herself.
