Diary of a Provincial Girl (2004)

Sobre o filme

In the end of the 19th century, when Brazil had just abolished slavery and proclaimed Republic, the girl Helena Morley, starts to write a diary. Of English origens, she lives in Diamantina, a city which was enduring a mining decay at the time. Her father believes the mines around can still be very profitable. Due to the risky choice of the fancier husband, her mother suffers humiliations from the richer brother. Helena shares these agonies, but keeps experiencing the cheerfullness of her age. Rebel and independent, she has disciplinary problems in school, but compensates it with her great skill for writing. She spends most of the time by the grandmother, her greatest protector, flirts with her cousin and stimulates her intuition and intelligence to turn herself from a girl into a woman.
