Just like to add that the movie was based on a book by a turn of last
century feminist Australian writer called Ethel Florence Robertson who
wrote under the psedoymn of Henry Handel Richardson. She herself went
through a similar experience in her childhood due to her brash nature
and musical ability and also the death of her father at a young age.
Her sexual orientation and particularly her relation with an old school
friend was controversial. It's a funny little story and i think anyone
who has been in a situation where they had a different family or social
background will relate to it. Not a "wower" but it does give the
audience a sense of life going on despite all that people may do.
Just a bit of background information for all who would like to know
