Just like to add, 9 December 2004

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
