Summary "Headstrong young Sybylla Melvyn (Judy Davis) bemoans her stifling life in the backcountry where her writerly ambitions receive little encouragement, and craves independence over all else. When a handsome landowner (Sam Neill), disarmed by her unruly charms, begins to court her, Sybylla must decide whether she can reconcile the prospect of marriage with the illustrious life's work she imagines for herself."--Container
