The Eye of the Storm, DVD


Geoffrey Rush, Charlotte Rampling and Judy Davis star in this Australian drama adapted from Patrick White's 1973 novel.

Fading actor Basil (Rush) and his sister, divorcee Dorothy (Davis), return to their childhood home, a mansion in Centennial Park, Sydney, to visit their ailing mother, Elizabeth Hunter (Rampling).

Despite her condition, Elizabeth still retains a powerful hold over her children and shares much more affection with her staff than with her son and daughter.

Basil and Dorothy arrive at the estate in the hopes that they will inherit their mother's fortune, but their visit also stirs up old memories and forces the family to face their troubled past.
