The Secret Diaries of Miss Anne Lister

secret diaries of miss anne listerSplendid U.K. production of The Secret Diaries of Miss Anne Lister. A solid, pleasing film based on the true life of Anne Lister who refuses to follow convention in Nineteenth Century Yorkshire. As a wealthy orphan, Anne decides to run her own property rather than find a suitable male to marry. She realizes she’s a lesbian and blazes a trail all her own taking on lovers and eventually finding a young woman to settle down with. I’m not sure how much of this film truthfully tells of the difficulties Anne must have faced, but I found the modern trappings comforting and allowed me to enjoy the film and blissfully wish for a happy ending. 3.5 out of 5.
