The Eye of the Storm
Rated NR, 114 min.
An eccentric brother (Geoffrey Rush) and sister (Judy Davis) kill time at their homestead in Australia while they wait for their sickly, wealthy mother (Charlotte Rampling)—who wears a variety of pastel wigs—to decide who goes in her will. Rush narrates the proceedings as if he's giving stage directions for a play because, you see, life is a stage. Some scenes are smart and funny, and the movie's sometimes genuinely weird, but there's not much to Eye of the Storm
other than this idea of life as a performance.
