NFSA Kodak/Atlab Cinema Collection essay. Bruce Beresford's production of The Getting of Wisdom (1977) is derived from Henry Handel Richardson's book of the same name. Rose Lucas writes that the film is notable for its historical interest in fin de sie`cle Australian society and its metaphoric relationship with an individual's transition away from the influences of the past and towards a future of her own making; its interest in a female protagonist; its links to an important Australian novel; and its important standing in Beresford's now extensive filmography.
