In the Sydney suburb of Centennial Park, two nurses, a housekeeper and a solicitor attend to Elizabeth Hunter (Charlotte Rampling, Swimming Pool, Never Let Me Go) as her expatriate son, Basil (Academy Award (R) winner Geoffrey Rush, The King's Speech, Shine), and daughter, Dorothy (Judy Davis, Marie Antoinette, A Passage to India), convene at her deathbed. But in dying, as in living, Mrs Hunter remains a powerful force on those who surround her. Directed by Fred Schepisi (Six Degrees of Separation, Last Orders) and 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.
