Summer Repeat: The Secret Diaries of Miss Anne Lister (2010)

The Frock Flicks team is taking a little time off for a summer break, so we’re repeating some favorite posts from the archives.



A predecessor to 2019’s Gentleman Jack, this TV film of Anne Lister’s life covers the earlier period from about 1816, when Anne’s girlfriend Mariana marries a wealthy gentleman, until around 1832, because that’s when Anne meets and falls in love with local heiress Ann Walker. Less coal-mining politics and more lesbian love-lives here!
