Directed by Fred Schepisi, The Eye of the Storm is a film based on the 1972 novel of the same name by Patrick White, Australia’s sole Nobel laureate. It stars Charlotte Rampling as the dying Elisabeth Hunter, who is visited on her deathbed by her two children, Basil, an actor whose career is on the skids, (Geoffrey Rush) and Dorothy (Judy Davis), recently recovering from a failed marriage to a French blueblood. It’s a wonderful film, with a score featuring my friend Branford Marsalis, who also plays on ‘Tales of Time and Space”. The soundtrack album will be available soon, with extra tracks which feature jazz performances of the various themes. The music is scored for jazz trio, an orchestra of strings and winds, and guests Branford M, Julien Wilson and vocalist Gian Slater. The film is playing now, so please check it out!
