The Eye of the Storm

22 Nov

In “The Eye of the Storm” Charlotte Rampling plays the matriarch of a well-to-do and affluent family, with Australian actors Judy Davis and Geoffrey Rush as her daughter and son (respectively) who have a fractured relationship with their mother, but arrive at her deathbed-side to make sure they are visible enough to get their inheritances. The movie is made in Australia and the cast also includes many other great Australian actors. It is a very good drama, with a plot that meanders to various places, with interesting characters and it is beautifully made by Fred Schepsi. It is perhaps a little too long, but a good drama. The screenplay has been adapted from the ninth published novel by Australian novelist and 1973 Nobel Prize-winner, Patrick White.
