OSCAR AND LUCINDA (MOVIES SHE'LL LOVE)
Peter Carey's Booker Prize and Miles Franklin Award-winning novel Oscar and Lucinda is translated to the screen by acclaimed filmmaker Gillian Armstrong (Charlotte Gray, Little Women), culminating in a mesmerising tale of passion, wit and deception.
Oscar (Ralph Fiennes, Oscar® nominee for The English Patient) is a mysterious priest who is driven to gamble discreetly and donates his winnings to help the poor. Lucinda (Cate Blanchett, Oscar® winner for The Aviator) is a strong-willed Australian businesswoman who boldly defies society's rules. When their paths cross over an innocent game of cards, their lives are changed forever. Drawn into a spectacular journey of discovery and chance, these two remarkable characters, one obsessive, the other compulsive enter into a wager that may indeed prove their undoing.
Winner of 5 AFI Awards and nominated for an Oscar®, also featuring Tom Wilkinson (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel), Ciaran Hinds (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), an impressive line-up of Australian talent including Richard Roxburgh, Barry Otto, Lynette Curran, Josephine Byrnes, Chris Haywood and the unmistakable narration of Oscar® winner Geoffrey Rush, this criticaly-acclaimed film from Gillian Armstrong has been hailed as "the most adventuresome movie yet made by one of the best filmmakers of her time."
