In honor of Charlotte Brontë's birthday today, I re-watched To Walk Invisible: The Lives of the Brontë Sisters.
If you haven't seen it yet, you really should. It is a beautiful, and often painfully authentic look at the real life experiences of these remarkable women. But although it is full of the tragedy of their lives, it is also a wonderfully inspirational story about their literary triumph.

And, more importantly to me, it is a powerful story showing the vital importance of female friendships. These three brilliant sisters found a well of support and respect in each other, a precious commodity in an era when women rarely got either.
