Australia | 2011 | Fred Schepisi

The Eye of the Storm

Geoffrey Rush, Charlotte Rampling, and Judy Davis star in this new drama that won the critics award at the 2011 Melbourne Int’l Film Festival. The film tells of two grown children of a wealthy Australian matriarch—a stage actor (Rush) and a neurotic divorcee (Davis)—who fly from Europe to the deathbed of their mother (Rampling) Down Under. There unfolds a bitter, caustic family reunion that’s more about the disposition of wealth than the dispensing of goodbyes. From the director of The Chant of Jimmie Blacksmith, Roxanne, Six Degrees of Separation, et al. Based on a novel by Nobel Prize winner Patrick White. “An intelligent, visually sumptuous drama that embraces the grandeur of the Australian literary classic upon which it's based.” –The Hollywood Reporter.
