This review is from: The Secret Diaries of Miss Anne Lister [DVD] (DVD)
This is a scrupulous and substantial dramatisation of the early adult life of Miss Anne Lister, a Regency heiress in search of a "wife". Her diaries revealed a passionate and complex woman - snobbish, tenacious, arrogant, ruthless, clever, charismatic, entrepreneurial - and the film does a highly competent job of reflecting these facets of her personality. This is not the story of a swooning Austinesque heroine!
