The Real Anne Lister

The Real Anne Lister Movie Poster

In this tart and witty documentary, comedy writer Sue Perkins digs up the real dirt on Regency-era British lesbian, Annie Lister. Born in 1791, Lister lived in the same era as the Brönte sisters, but her writings were a far cry from Jane Eyre.

Tagged as 'The Rosetta Stone of lesbian history,' Lister's explicit diaries detail her sexual conquests with great panache.
