• The Getting of Wisdom: presented by Bendigo Queer Film Festival


Bruce Beresford's tender coming-of-age tale from 197, presented by Bendigo Queer Film Festival.

Genre: Drama. Dir: Bruce Beresford. Country: Australia.

Oscar-nominated director Bruce Beresford crafts a tender coming-of-age tale that introduces one of Australian literature's most beloved characters to the screen, Laura Tweedle Rambotham (Susannah Fowle). When free-spirited Laura finds herself ensconced in the rigidity of a turn-of-the-century exclusive Melbourne ladies’ college, she struggles to fit in. The elegant and kindly Evelyn Suitor (Hilary Ryan) takes her under her wing. Laura falls madly in love with her, but Evelyn leaves the school early in order to escape her ardour.
