Plot Synopsis:

In a Sydney suburb,two nurses, a housekeeper and a solicitor attend to Elizabeth Hunter (Charlotte Rampling) as her expatriate son and daughter convene at her deathbed.In dying, as in living, Mrs Hunter remains a disruptive force on those around her. Estranged from a mother who was never capable of loving them Sir Basil (Oscar Winner Geoffrey Rush), a famous but struggling actor in London, and Dorthy (Emmy Winner Judy Davis), a penniless French princess, attempt to reconcile with her. In doing so they are reduced from states of worldly sophistication to floundering adolescence. Directed by Fred Schepsis (Roxanne, Six Degrees of Separation, The Russia House)The Eye of the Storm is a witty, yet savage, exploration of family relationships and the sharp undercurrents of love, comedy and tragedy, which defines them.
