My Brilliant Career

"OK"

My Brilliant Career Review


Gillian Armstrong recruits a young Judy Davis, Sam Neill, and beloved Scottish book for this odd little cult favorite, a story about a woman who has to choose between her "brilliant" career and the various men in her life. Davis is charmingly cynical in the film, and Neill's a winner, but ultimately this period piece gets so caught up in its own cleverness and wannabe shock that it comes off as trite.
