My Brilliant Career

 (1979)

My Brilliant Career Blu-ray offers solid video and audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

As she comes of age in 19th-century Australia, the beautiful and headstrong Sybylla Melvyn stuns her family and friends by deciding to become a writer despite the restrictive Victorian environment in which they live. To pursue her ambitious dream, she rejects an enticing proposal from a handsome, wealthy, and persistent suitor, fearing the match might stifle her creativity.

My Brilliant Career Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

My Brilliant Career features another quality 1080p transfer from Blue Underground. Framed at 1.78:1, My Brilliant Career will likely disappoint viewers that disdain copious amounts of grain; several scenes are swirling in a heavy field that lend to the image a raw appearance, though through the majority of the picture it diminishes greatly, revealing a practically clear and crisp high definition image. Detail is rich and handsome throughout. What's on display here is not as pristine as what might be expected of a new release fresh from the local multiplex and a budget in the hundreds of millions of dollars, but the Australian Outback as seen in My Brilliant Career sports a nice collection of images; the dusty and dirt-laden plains, wooden and weathered fence posts and planks, tall grasses around Caddagat, straw hats, and other niceties allow the transfer to come to sparkling life. Colors are stable and nicely rendered throughout, but blacks tend to devour everything in their path. The image is generally sharp with only a few shots going the slightest bit soft. Flesh tones appear nicely preserved, and aside from a few errant speckles scattered about the film, My Brilliant Career makes for a nice, if not slightly rough-around-the-edges, 1080p experience of a classic 30-year-old film.


My Brilliant Career Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

My Brilliant Career arrives on Blu-ray with a DTS-HD MA 7.1 lossless soundtrack. This isn't exactly the sort of movie that's going to dazzle listeners with a full array of surround and subwoofer activity, but the 7.1 track is a nice touch and does make for a more active and pleasant experience than would a one- or two-channel presentation which would have suited the material just fine. The lossless mix does do a fine job of immersing the listener in several scenes throughout; whether heavy blowing winds or the soft, inviting keystrokes of a piano flowing through the soundstage (even if it is focused up the middle), the track does all it can to open up the film and invite listeners to soak up plenty of nuanced niceties that add to the atmosphere of the film. Elsewhere, the subtle yet pleasant sounds of chirping birds, trotting horses, and a gently flowing stream lend a relaxing tone to the film and are nicely realized on Blu-ray. Nevertheless, My Brilliant Career is a dialogue-driven picture at its core, and save for a few words and phrases that might not immediately stand out under thick accents or in the context of local colloquialisms, the spoken word is generally clear and intelligible throughout. All said, My Brilliant Career covers all the sonic bases and makes for a pleasing listen considering the general feel of the picture.
