What one desires is often not what others want (for themselves or for you), particularly problematic if you are a young woman aspiring to be a writer in colonial Australia in the 1890s. A very young Judy Davis and Sam Neil make for an interesting synergy of playfulness and self-denial (or is it?). Armstrong and Donald McAlpine (cinematographer) perfectly capture the essence of the harsh Australian landscape (physical and social) of this nascent nation.
