Anne Lister is a landowning woman who defied the conventions of her 19th century life to great scandal, for Anne was a lesbian.

And so she begins a string of relationships.

This is not a movie about lesbians. This is a movie about love. Needing love. Having love taken from you. Settling for love, or some semblance of. It is a beautiful love story.

This story is based on the writings of Anne Lister, which were finally decoded 150 years after her death. This piece of information helps make the movie a lot more understandable. Ms. Lister does break convention in the time she lived, but sometimes appears to be just a whinging child. She was apparently quite a business woman, which was not a direction the movie was focused in.
