The Eye Of The Storm has received a lot of critical reviews since its theatrical release last September 2011. Here are some of the short quotes from top critics around the globe:
Charlotte Rampling has been remarkably good at playing craggy old women lately (see Melancholia) and she outdoes herself as Elizabeth, a bourgeois woman on her deathbed anticipating the return of her two estranged and needy adult children (Geoffrey Rush and Judy Davis). Elizabeth seems acutely aware of their selfish motives but still welcomes the chance to spit a bit more venom their way. – Radheyan Simonpillai, NOW Toronto
The storyline interweaves the present with episodes from the past, shaped mainly by the memories of Elizabeth and Dorothy, although other points of view intrude, as they do in the novel. But on screen, they produce an emotional fracturing that has a way of dissipating the intensity and cooling things down. At times, I felt as if I were watching a series of splendidly realised set-pieces arranged like showcases for watching actors act. – Sandra Hall, Sydney Morning Herald
These are just some of the wonderful things that can be expected from The Eye Of The Storm. People will be in for a wonderful story brought to film this April 20th 2012.
