My Brilliant Career
So yeah, like I mentioned a few days ago, the film My Brilliant Career was released in 1979, and you need look no further for one of the inspirations for Stevie’s Tusk tour bun!
The film is based on a novel written at the age of 16 by an Australian named Stella Maria Sarah Miles Franklin (that’s her in the lower left pic above). There’s a good page about it here, and you can actually download the whole book here.
The fundamental reason it’s interesting in a ‘Sara’ context is that it’s about a woman feeling that she has to choose between being an artist and having a ‘normal’ home life. So, um… yes. That again.
