Fred Schepisi's familial drama The Eye of the Storm stars Charlotte Rampling as Elizabeth Hunter, the wealthy, dying mother to Basil (Geoffrey Rush) a successful actor, and Dorothy (Judy Davis), who exists on the money she made when she divorced a low-level member of Italian royalty. The children arrive at the mother's estate, hoping to get some cash from mom, and also make peace with the hurts she inflicted on them when they were teenagers. For her part, Elizabeth keeps playing mind games with her kids up to the very end. The film played at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival.
