This is a story about the most famous Indonesian heroine, Kartini.

In early 1900 BC, when Indonesia was still a colony of the Netherlands, Java is a land where the noble family rules under Dutch supervision. Only noble and royal family are able to get an education. Women aren’t allowed to get higher education, even with royal blood. Women in Javanese culture only have one purpose – to be a bride for a man with royal blood.

Kartini grew up to fight this caste system and fight for equality for women and, most importantly, she fought for the right for everyone to get an education regardless of their social status or gender. This is Kartini’s emotional journey, where she defies her own family, her own culture and she has to fight for a change in rules and tradition that are considered sacred in Java.


Sinopsis:

Kartini (Dian Sastrowardoyo) tumbuh dengan melihat langsung bagaimana ibu kandungnya, Ngasirah (Christine Hakim) menjadi orang terbuang di rumahnya sendiri, dianggap pembantu hanya karena tidak mempunyai darah ningrat. Ayahnya, Raden Sosroningrat (Deddy Sutomo), yang mencintai Kartini dan keluarga juga tidak berdaya melawan tradisi.

Sepanjang hidupnya, Kartini memperjuangkan kesetaraan hak bagi semua orang, tidak peduli ningrat atau bukan, terutama hak pendidikan untuk perempuan. Bersama kedua saudarinya, Roekmini (Acha Septriasa) dan Kardinah (Ayushita Nugraha), Kartini mendirikan sekolah untuk kaum miskin dan menciptakan lapangan kerja untuk rakyat di Jepara dan sekitarnya.

Film Kartini adalah perjuangan emosional dari sosok Kartini yang harus melawan tradisi dan bahkan menentang keluarganya sendiri untuk memperjuangkan kesetaraan hak untuk semua orang di Indonesia.
