Synopsis


Yorkshire, 1810.


Anne Lister, a landowner and secret diarist, is a gentlewoman who defies convention.


As Britain's first modern lesbian, in a time when it is difficult just being female, Anne embarks on her life's mission, to fall in love and find someone to share her world with.


But her pursuit of happiness is threatened by a scandalised society, and Anne must fight to live the way she wants to.


Based on true events, Gentleman Jack is a passionate and dramatic tale of love and survival in the face of prejudice.
