Story


In the Sydney suburb of Centennial Park, two nurses, a housekeeper and a solicitor attend to Elizabeth Hunter as her expatriate son and daughter convene at her deathbed. But in dying, as in living, Mrs Hunter remains a powerful force on those who surround her.

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.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..technical deficiencies and an ill-structured script fail to do justice to Patrick White's densely textured novel..”
by Russell Edwards [Variety]
“..the subject matter is dark but disjointed, despite the best efforts of the cast..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]
“..though the performances are the obvious draw here, they're just not enough to sell these characters..”
by Liam Lacey [The Globe and Mail]
