Jane Campion / AU, NZ, FR, 1992 / 121 min.
Bold power play and sexual awakening in 19th-century New Zealand. A woman takes control of her own life in this magnificent tale of love. Jane Campion is the only female filmmaker so far to have won the Palme d’Or at Cannes, with this her third feature film. Newly restored.
In the 19th century, Scottish Ada (Holly Hunter) is sent to the remote West Coast of New Zealand to marry an insensitive coloniser (Sam Neill). Ada, who is mute, arrives with her young daughter (Anna Paquin) and a piano – her surrogate voice.
