Opal
Inspired by true events, Opal is the captivating tale of self-taught naturalist and cult icon Opal Whiteley. Raised in a logging camp at the turn of the twentieth century, Opal catapults to fame with the publication of her childhood diary, then to infamy when readers suspect a hoax. While the scandal has yet to be resolved, the film rides the tension between truth and fiction, and presents a character who embodies the possibilities of both.
