Secret Diaries of Miss Anne Lister, The
Maxine Peake stars in a profoundly moving drama based on the real diaries of Anne Lister: a landowning woman who defied the conventions of her 19th century life to great scandal... for Anne was a lesbian. Her affair with 'soul mate' Marianna Belcombe keeps society guessing but when it is announced that Marianna is to be married to the older, corpulent and wealthy Charles Lawton, Anne is distraught. And so she begins a string of relationships. But while Ann is a proud, strong and supportive partner in a time when lesbianism just isn't tolerated, can Anne's feelings for her ever match those she has for Marianna? Set in the small, elite world of high society, The Secret Diaries of Miss Anne Lister is an inspiring story of 'the first modern lesbian.']]>

it about two women back in England or London years ago,
the way the people dress in the movie is fitting for the time,
but the main part of the show is about two women that fall in love over the years
and one decides to go off and get married to a man and leaves the other back to figure
out how to live life without her, the reason this happens is, back in the day,
marrying a same sex partner could either get you killed or just ruin your business or
att he very least your life.
so, these two women would find a way to meet each other , even though one was married to a man,
she keeps telling the other women , as soon as my husband passes on, we can be together,
now does it ever happen and how do these two women find a way to still connect with each other over the years?
this is not a typical lesbian movie by no means, its more like a soap opera made in the 1930's and 40's
i would recommend this movie to anyone ! well maybe not to small kids.
after you watch the show, you will feel like you have had a history lesson in life!
