Well crafted, to be sure, but light on genuine emotional depth, the material is aching to find meaning, but falls short

This is not a film for everyone but the discerning will find plenty to admire in Fred Schepisi's brave statement that demands to be noticed

It's fascinating to see Schepisi, who made his name with period pieces, return to the 1970s as an era that deserves examination in its own right.

With three powerhouse actors out front and one of Australia's most renowned filmmakers calling the shots, it is of no wonder that The Eye of the Storm is one of the better local productions this year.

The characters are very brittle and very difficult to sympathise with in many ways and so it presents the actors with tremendous challenges. But I think that they've overcome those challenges really very well indeed and there is some marvellous acting.

I'm not sure that the depths of the novel have been plumbed in the film... But it is time that an attempt was made on Patrick White and the array of talent in and around this film makes this a grand effort

The production is ravishingly designed and, beside a full-on Rampling, features a collection of Australian actors at the very top of their game.

Lust, lies and envy laid bare in adaptation of Patrick White's novel.

Geoffrey Rush and Judy Davis bookend a cast consisting of some of Oz's finest thesps, but Schepisi never gets a grip on a script with awkward literary tics.

An intelligent, visually sumptuous drama that embraces the grandeur of the Australian literary classic upon which it's based.
