Plot: Elizabeth Hunter controls all in her life-society, her staff, her children; but the once great beauty will now determine her most defiant act as she chooses her time to die.
Review: Veteran Fred Schepisi is a director with a vast different styles covered along his career, having made his best achievements with “The Devil’s Playground”, “The Chant of Jimmy Blacksmith” and “A Cry in the Dark”. “The Eye of the Storm” is a pungent story that could have been harder to watch if it wasn’t so magnificently acted by Charlotte Rampling, Geoffrey Rush and Judy Davis. It gives an insight look at an Australian bourgeois’ family extending its criticism to the society itself. Mature cinema.Relevant awards: Special award (Melbourne); jury award (Rome).
