The Reviews for My Brilliant Career (1979) 1080p


Frank, you are the man!Reviewed byxstevenxVote: 7/10

I saw this movie in my Australian Cinema class, and I must say that what I appreciated this movie for more than anything else is the humor. When I am forced to watch movies for a class, instead of just thinking how much this movie stinks, I laugh at all the things that are funny to me. Frank, a noble man who thinks that Sybylla (the main character) will marry him because she can't do any better (quite an insult to this independent minded woman), is hilarious. Not only is he funny looking, he's also a jerk, but in a silly way. Frank made me laugh so many times.

I liked what I saw of the cinematography, but was not able to appreciate it fully because I saw the film on and old VHS copy, and only about half the frame is there. Judy Davis's performance is quite charming, and I do see the Nicole Kidman similarities in this role, it is mostly in the eyes.

I cannot really tell you how this film measures up to the book, not having read it, but what what I can tell you is that "My Brilliant Career" has a fantastic pillow fight sequence, one of the best that I have seen in any film. Watch it just for this if nothing else.

Brilliant storytelling, Davis gives a flat-out great performanceReviewed byAmy AdlerVote: 8/10

Sybylla (Judy Davis) is a young woman living in turn of the century Australia. Unlike a lot of girls, she doesn't want marriage and a family, she would like to have "a brilliant career". What in, she does not quite know. Sent to live with rich relatives, she meets a neighboring land owner (Sam Neill) who is quite wealthy, single, and handsome. And, he seems to have an eye on Sybylla. They become mates and have wonderful meetings where pillow fights reign supreme. Is it time to just rethink one's priorities, in Sybylla's case? This is a great film, based on the author's own experiences. Women are who they are, even 100 years ago, and Sybylla wants to follow her best instincts, not the traditions of the time. As Sybylla, Davis is flat-out brilliant, for, in her hands, we see this young lady's intelligence, beauty and fierce independence come to life. Neill gives a nice performance, too, as a man who has the tables turned on him by a woman, for heaven's sake. The settings and costumes are wonderful depictions of life long ago and the overall production values are very high. Although this film could probably be called a feminist classic, do not let that keep you away, if that sounds unattractive. It is a richly rewarding tale of a person following her heart and, as such, is great encouragement to anyone who walks to the beat of a different drum.

Even twenty odd years after I first saw it, this film makes me want to cheer. Gillian Armstrong, if you're out there, thank you!Reviewed bywseVote: 10/10

My mother took me to see this film when I was ten, the year before she died. It changed my entire perspective on the world, set me free from the constraints of fairy tales and inspired me to do something worthwhile with my life (write). I've seen it a few times since then, and found it improved in pace with my understanding.

Apparently Judy Davis didn't like this character or sympathize with her. All I can say is that I'm glad she went ahead and took the role anyway. Sybylla is like Cinderella with a twist worthy of M. Night Shymalan.

The film is sometimes beautiful and lyrical, sometimes depressing and ugly. At all times it is believable because the forces driving Sybylla transcend time and place: creativity and independence. This film taught me that a gilded cage is still a cage.

Even twenty odd years after I first saw it, this film makes me want to cheer. Gillian Armstrong, if you're out there, thank you!
