Fred Schepisi's Australian "The Eye of The Storm" has been acquired by Sycamore Entertainment for US distribution. Starring Geoffrey Rush, Charlotte Rampling and Judy Davis, the film is based on Patrick White's 1973 Nobel Prize-winning novel, adapted by Judy Morris.

Schepisi says: “It was a great pleasure working with Charlotte Rampling, Geoffrey Rush, Judy Davis & the cream of Australian's acting fraternity, bringing to life this story set in the changing times of 1972, about a family, that was definitely not, your average loving family.”

The film was financed by the Australia Broadcasting Corporation, Screen Australia, Film Victoria, Ingenious and Omnilab. At the Melbourne International Film Festival, "Storm" won the Age Critics' Award as well as the Rome Film Festival's Premiere Special Jury Prize. The film is also nominated for twelve awards at the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts awards. Sycamore plans to release the film on April 20.
