Synopsis

Adapted from Nobel laureate Patrick White's acclaimed novel, this darkly witty drama stars Geoffrey Rush as a fading West End actor who joins his estranged sister (Judy Davis) at the family estate in Sydney to be with their dying mother Elizabeth (Charlotte Rampling). Naturally, all eyes are on the inheritance. But having controlled every facet of her life, Elizabeth is taking exactly the same approach to her death. Veteran director Fred Schepisi (Roxanne, A Cry in the Dark) shows a keen eye and ear for the decadent, 1970s details of White's tale of selfishness and manipulation.
