The first trailer for "The Eye of the Storm" has arrived. Featuring Oscar-winning actor Geoffrey Rush and Golden Globe-winning actress Judy Davis, the promotional video highlights a family problem that happens in the Hunter family that lives in the Sydney suburb of Centennial Park.
It sees two nurses, a housekeeper and a solicitor attending to Elizabeth Hunter (Charlotte Rampling) 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.
"The Eye of the Storm", which is based on the 1973 literary classic by Nobel Prize winner Patrick White, offers a savage exploration of family relationship, and the sharp undercurrents of love and hate, comedy and tragedy, which define them.
After winning several awards in various Film Festival, the critically acclaimed Australian movie has just been acquired by Sycamore Entertainment Group Inc. On the partnership with the U.S. distributor, lead actor Geoffrey Rush said, "I am delighted to be working with Sycamore to bring this wonderful film, from the hand of maestro director Fred Schepisi, to U.S. audiences."
The drama was screened during the 36th Toronto International Film Festival in September 2011. After Sycamore bought the film, it is scheduled to be released in limited U.S. theaters on April 20.
