31 August, 2010 by IF

Fred Schepisi's adaptation of Patrick White's acclaimed novel The Eye of the Storm stars Geoffrey Rush and Judy Davis. The film – Schepisi's first Australian film in more than a decade – recently completed its shoot.

The film is set in Sydney's Centennial Park, where two nurses, a housekeeper and a solicitor attend to Elizabeth Hunter (Charlotte Rampling), as her expatriate son (Geoffrey Rush) and daughter (Judy Davis) convene at her deathbed. But, in dying, as in living, Mrs Hunter remains a powerful force on those who surround her. The novel was awarded Australia’s only ever Noble Prize for literature in 1973.
