THE GETTING OF WISDOM DVD

$30.00

A gem sparkling with humour and intelligence and radiating with the warmth of unsentimental understanding. SCREEN INTERNATIONAL.

 

A joy to behold! FRED YEAGER, ASSOCIATED PRESS.

 

Told with a delicate blend of satire and nostalgia, this award-winning coming-of-age tale introduces one of Australian literature's most beloved characters to the screen, Laura Tweedle Rambothan (Susannah Fowle).

 

Chronicling her stormy passage through the sedate halls of an expensive Melbourne finishing school, THE GETTING OF WISDOM delivers a rich and amusing portrait of an imaginative country girl who refuses to be broken to fit the mould of a Victorian-era young lady.

 

Based on the immortal best seller by Henry Handel Richardson, directed by acclaimed filmmaker Bruce Beresford (Don's Party, Breaker Morant), and boasting top-class performances from Barry Humphries, John Waters and future stars Sigrid Thornton and Kerry Armstrong, THE GETTING OF WISDOM is an Australian cinema classic.
