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.

There's Judy Davis, Charlotte Rampling, Geoffrey Rush, platypus fur and creepy German cabaret performed in a bedroom by a German servant. Sold! Right? Well, maybe.
