Product Overview

Told with a delicate blend of satire and nostalgia, this award-winning coming-of-age take introduces one of Australian literature's most beloved characters to the screen, Laura Tweedle Rambothan (Susannah Fowle).

Chronicling, her stormy passage through the sedate halls of an expensive Melbourne finishing school. The Getting of Wisdom delivers a rich and amusing portrait of an imaginative country girl who refuses to be broken to fit the mould of a Victorian-era young lady.
