Let me give you three names: Geoffrey Rush, Judy Davis, Charlotte Rampling.
If that holy trinity doesn't have you running for the cinema, then we need to have words! But ok, here's two more: Fred Schepisi and Patrick White.
Oh yes, I'm delighted to be giving away five double passes to see The Eye of the Storm (thanks to Transmission).
I'll be speaking more about the film on an upcoming episode of The Movie Club, so in the meantime, here's the synopsis:
In the Sydney suburb of Centennial Park, two nurses, a housekeeper and a solicitor attend to Elizabeth Hunter as her expatriate son and daughter convene at her deathbed. But in dying, as in living, Mrs Hunter remains a powerful force on those who surround her.
Based on the novel by Nobel Prize winner Patrick White, The Eye of the Storm is a savage exploration of family relationships — and the sharp undercurrents of love and hate, comedy and tragedy which define them.
