Dir: Jane Campion | Australia/France/New Zealand | 1993 | 121 mins
Cast: Holly Hunter, Anna Paquin, Harvey Keitel, Sam Neill

Jane Campion’s triumphant masterpiece won Oscars for Holly Hunter and Anna Paquin as well as Best Screenplay for its individualistic, female-centric script. Hunter is majestic as Ada, a mute Scotswoman and talented pianist who arrives with her daughter Flora (Paquin) in the New Zealand wilderness. Set to marry a frontiersman (Sam Neill), she agrees to give piano lessons to his overseer George (Harvey Keitel) – encounters that quickly take on a powerful erotic charge. Examining the emotions of each character as they rise to the fore, The Piano is unforgettable, a tale of tremendous urgency and power by one of the most compelling filmmakers working today.
