A Woman's Tale

Directed by Paul Cox
Australia, 1991


An uplifting and intimate look at the last days of an elderly cancer victim. A Woman’s Tale is even more relevant as it was written specifically for the lead actress, Sheila Florance, who was in fact dying of cancer as she created what is essentially a self-portrait.
