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.
